Previously known as the Gun Violence Prevention Network, in 2013 this was the first intentional and national effort to reach out to young people on the issue of gun violence. At the 2016 third annual Fight4AFuture Summit, we rebranded the Gun Violence Prevention Network to the Fight4AFuture Network, as we make an intentional effort to incorporate criminal justice reform in our work.

It’s time to take the fight for gun violence prevention and criminal justice reform and turn it into next-level actions! Stay tuned for more information about the next Generation Progress Fight4AFuture Summit.

The annual weekend-long summit brings together activists, policy experts, and students to foster a conversation on the importance of training young people. Annually, we brought together more than 60 young activists to tackle gun violence through trainings, seminars, the arts, and network-building opportunities.

We invite you to grow the network by exploring the intersection of criminal justice reform and gun violence prevention, to engage and activate young leaders to lead the movement, and to take on bolder policy solutions in the new era. There has been no greater time to put forth solutions to the gun violence crisis and the injustices of our criminal justice system, and we want to make sure you have the tools to turn ideas into policy change.

The application process will open in the spring.
