  • High School Students Say PeaceJam Was ‘Life Changing’

    “Better than Christmas” and “life changing” were some of the phrases used by Newtown High School students who attended PeaceJam New England on April 6 at the University of Connecticut Storrs campus.

    The ten students who attended the conference were all members of the Newtown Junior Action Alliance (NJAA). The NJAA is affiliated with the Newtown Action Alliance, a grassroots organization created in the weeks after 12/14 to reverse gun violence through legislation and broader cultural change.
