Join The 'A MILLION VOICES' Revolution Today!

'A Million Voices' Campaign Unifies Students Across The Country In Addressing School Violence! Across Cities, State Lines - From East coast To West Coast - From The Hills Of Kentucky To The Streets Of Los Angeles!

This student driven initiative unites students & school communities unlike any other. Students from diverse school communities across the United States, ranging from elementary schools to universities and spanning urban to rural areas, are uniting through The Uvalde Foundation For Kids' "A Million Voices Campaign" to address a pressing issue - school violence. Join US! The Goal? ONE MILLION VOICES!

This national petition & call to action, signed by students and supporters from across the United States is perhaps the largest student initiated signature & call to action campaign historically to address the culture of violence in America. It aims to both unite students and school commuunities across the nation in addessing school violence IN ALL FORMS.

Overseen by the Uvalde Foundation For Kids Student Ambassador program, this effort urges our educational institutions to commit towards implementing at least one NEW action this school year that can help break the cycle of violence disrupting our futures and our classrooms! Likewise, it urges our national leaders to view school violence from a wider scope than simply, "Gun Control."

Following this 6 month campaign, the school or student, selected from across the nation, who collects the most petition signatures or "Calls to Action," will receive a financial scholarship & official recognition for their dedication to student safety.
