But the debate around solutions has largely fallen on deaf ears due to the politicized nature of the conversation. Sandy Hook Promise reframed the national debate around gun violence to focus on people, not politics. Our film showcased the fact that gun violence is preventable, when you know the signs. This message struck a chord, garnering billions of impressions, 115 Million views, and an 11X increase in signups to their Promise Leader Program.

Our multi-tiered effort kept the bill’s negative consequences top of mind and turned the tide of public opinion. We drove over half a billion earned media impressions in the fight against what became the single biggest issue that helped make Pat McCrory the first sitting governor in North Carolina’s history — Democrat or Republican — to be ousted on Election Day.
