The Youth PROMISE Action Campaign
With enough cosponsors in the House to pass this session and growing support in the Senate, the Youth PROMISE Act has a chance to make an immediate impact on the lives of youth throughout our country.
The Youth PROMISE Action Campaign seeks to ramp up the public momentum behind the bill, causing a wave of citizen support that Congress cannot ignore. YouthPROMISEAction.org will raise awareness of the need for the Youth PROMISE Act and record thousands of signatures that will help show Congress that this is a piece of legislation the American people want passed NOW.
Imagine saving thousands of potential victims. Imagine giving every young person the opportunity to reach his or her potential. Imagine healthier families, safer communities, and stronger support for youth across the country.
Now stop imagining and make it a reality. Become a Citizen Cosponsor of the Youth PROMISE Act today. (top)
Join the Campaign!
Partner Organizations: SPA and TPA are seeking partners who will be involved in each stage of the YouthPROMISEAction.org campaign. This entails: participation in strategic planning, campaign logistics planning, sending requests to list-serves and new media communities, posting content on organization’s website, engaging people of influence (i.e. to blog, tweet, write op-ed), and coordination to establish advocacy meetings in districts and on the Hill. Partners and links to their websites will be prominently displayed on YouthPROMISEAction.org
Supporting Organizations: SPA and TPA are seeking organizations to support the action in some meaningful way, though not in as comprehensive a fashion as the Partners. This includes any involvement in the online and grassroots campaigns: from joining district or DC advocacy meetings, to publicizing the petition online. Supporting organizations and website links will also be posted on the YouthPROMISEAction.org. (top)

The Peace Alliance
The Peace Alliance is an alliance of organizers and advocates throughout the United States taking the work of peacebuilding from the margins of society into the centers of national discourse and policy priorities – working to make it the bedrock of our personal, national and global interest and investment. Making peace a reality for us requires a multi-sector strategic approach that includes advocating for evidence-based peacebuilding legislation and community peacebuilding efforts that engage people in the day-to-day work of understanding and preventing violence in our homes, communities, and institutions as well as in our personal lives. Together with like-minded organizations we build broad-based coalitions, educate the public, and generate media in support of our specific policy and community service initiatives. The Peace Alliance is active in all 50 states and has leadership in half of all congressional districts nationwide. (top)
Student Peace Alliance
Student Peace Alliance (SPA) is a national youth organization with over 80 chapters at high schools, community colleges, and universities across the country. SPA unites young people to advocate for evidence-based legislation and policy that will enhance our capacity to reduce violence and build sustainable peace both domestically and internationally. Our applied peacebuilding efforts engage youth in the day-to-day work of understanding and preventing violence in our homes, communities and institutions. SPA also works in close partnership with The Peace Alliance to advocate for our chosen legislation and together our goal is to take the field of peacebuilding from the margins of the political and societal dialogue and bring it to its rightful place: central to our policymaking, investment and understanding. This year SPA has taken on the Youth PROMISE Act as its primary legislative focus. (top)
