NEWTOWN, Connecticut. – From a senseless tragedy, many family members of the 26 children and educators killed five years ago at the Sandy Hook Elementary School have looked for ways to find meaning in the advocacy.
They are dedicated to the love, activism, and other efforts to channel their grief and, in many cases, to help in the prevention of violence.
Some organizations honor the memory of the passions of the children who were lost on Dec. 14, 2012.
Others have jumped into the policy fight to lobby for gun control or improved mental health. In some cases, they have traveled through the country, and even in the world, recognized experts in their field.
The Sandy Hook families have created a website to share their stories and information about the different projects that she started in memory of their family members.
