NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Parents of Sandy Hook victims say the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, has them reliving their darkest day, but they say the pain and anger many are now feeling can be turned into change.

At Sandy Hook Promise, they continue to push for prevention in the hopes of stopping gun violence. In the nearly 10 years since 20 children and six staff members were shot and killed in Newtown in December 2012, some say some change has happened but more needs to be done.

The national, nonprofit organization founded and led by several family members who lost loved ones at Sandy Hook says this isn’t a partisan issue — it’s about protecting our children. They know firsthand the pain and heartbreak these families in Texas are experiencing and offer their support.

They outline steps anyone can take to make even a small difference in preventing a tragedy like this from happening again. Through their “Know the Signs” program, they teach kids and adults how to identify at-risk behaviors and intervene to get help.

According to Sandy Hook Promise’s website, warning signs can include things such as thoughts, feelings, actions, and behaviors, and at-risk people can show significant or sudden changes in behavior or personality.

Advocates are also calling for bipartisan legislation, pushing for strong background checks and a ban on the high-powered weapons used in these types of attacks.

Mark Barden, the co-founder and CEO of Sandy Hook Promise, and the father of Daniel, who was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, said it doesn’t have to be a partisan argument.

“We can talk about this within the frame of everyone wants to protect their children,” Barden said. “Everyone wants their communities to be safe. We have policies and tools from gun safety policy, community-based violence intervention programs, research-driven policies that we can implement now that can reduce these numbers and stop these atrocities from happening.”

Nicole Hockley, also a co-founder and CEO of Sandy Hook Promise, and the mother of Dylan, who was also killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, said more needs to be done.

“It still feels like we’re not yet to the point in tipping that scale in creating – or delivering – on the change that saves lives,” Hockley said. “We’re making significant progress, but far too many people continue to die.”

Through their work, Sandy Hook Promise said they’ve helped prevent nine different, planned school shootings.
