  • Jr NAA Members Attends UConn’s Spring PeaceJam, Look Toward Leadership Summit

    After attending the University of Connecticut’s Spring PeaceJam event, held March 15-16, Junior Newtown Action Alliance (Jr NAA) founder and Newtown High School senior Sarah Clements said her group’s members thought this year’s PeaceJam was better than last year’s.

    This year, the Newtown Foundation invited urban youth to attend with young people from Sandy Hook and Newtown. The Newtown Foundation also offered scholarships to teens wishing to attend.

  • PeaceJam Planning: NJAA Online Survey Open For NHS, NMS Students

    The Newtown Junior Action Alliance (NJAA) group has created an online survey for Newtown High School and Newtown Middle School students to fill out.

    The survey asks three questions, and will help NJAA members set up a fall event that Sarah Clements, who is head of NJAA, said will focus on “transforming tragedy into positive change.”

    NJAA is affiliated with Newtown Action Alliance, a grassroots organization created in the weeks after 12/14 to reverse gun violence through legislation and broader cultural change.
