"I’ve been saying for a long time now that I want to change the world. I didn’t know it then, but this is what I meant. Today is the day that every NFTY event I’ve ever been to has been preparing me for." -Zoe Terner, Vice President-Elect of NFTY Social Action
Since the unspeakable – but, sadly, not remotely unimaginable – horror of the shooting in Parkland, FL, students across the country are standing up, using our voice and our power to say we will no longer accept the current level of gun violence in America. We are mobilizing in a wide variety of ways, both locally and nationally, for sensible gun laws.
This is a moment unlike any in recent memory – and all over the U.S., Reform Jewish teens are leading the way.
We take pride in this remarkable leadership, but pride is not enough. We need teens, young adults and the entire Movement to join NFTY, the Reform Jewish Youth Movement, and participate in powerful initiatives on the local, state and national level.

Like so many teens, we at NFTY are inspired by our peers mobilizing in their own communities. With your support, we will not let the deaths of our friends in Parkland be in vain.
