  • 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.
