Alexandria, Va. – April 20, 2018 – Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, issued the following statement on A National Day of Action to Prevent Gun Violence in Schools.

“Today is a day of action and opportunity for schools, communities, educators and students alike to come together to advocate for something that should be assumed and automatic: safe, gun free schools.

“As we mark the 19th anniversary of Columbine and honor the students and educators who continue to lose their lives in school shootings, we continue to call on Congress to enact common-sense legislation that can help end gun violence in and out of schools. 

“AASA is proud to support the National Day of Action to End Gun Violence in Schools and its efforts to support millions of Americans as they stand up to say ‘No More’ to the gun violence that continues to harm and threaten our nation’s schools and students.”
