Our Mission

March for Our Lives was not the climax of a movement; it was just the beginning. Students and activists all over the country are pushing for sensible gun reform. The mission of New Yorkers Rise Up is to fight for gun reform that will leave lasting change in New York State. New Yorkers Rise Up  is dedicated to empowering and connecting communities all across New York that have the common goal of ending gun violence. 


We need to see real action from lawmakers. They have to actually mean it, take meaningful steps to save children’s lives.
