National student advocacy and violence prevention nonprofit formed after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas - The Uvalde Foundation For Kids, released a statement Friday morning, questioning any sustainable, positive impact recent lawsuits filed by attorneys representing many of the affected families of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting, will have on preventing other such tragedies in the future.

The foundation statement asserted that while the families ongoing search for additional accountability for 19 students & 2 teachers being shot - Suing gun manufacturers, gamers and social media networks remains an "empty endeavor," which will only result in a financial settlement, with no real change."

The foundation went on to say, that it is communicating with the social media platforms & gamer to engage in more sustainable action to change what it referred to as, "The culture & the message surrounding youth and student violence in the gaming industry and social media platforms."


The foundation further noted that it will continue to seek meaningful, conversations on the critical topic & partnerships with these entities, including a national anti violence campaign to be uncovered in the fall of 2024 is sought out to create more of what it sees the families are seeking overall.


According to legal representatives of the family in the cases, the legal endeavors, including the newest lawsuits targeting gun manufacturer Daniel Defense, social media powerhouse Meta (the parent company of Instagram and Facebook), and video game titan Activision, will seek to shed light on the alleged marketing tactics that may or may not have facilitated the shooter’s access to weapons and potentially desensitized him to violence.
