An ad-hoc group formed in the wake of the Newtown massacre has launched a nonprofit group, “Sandy Hook Promise.”
Its mission is to honor “with action” those killed in the rampage, and is made up of community members — including first responders and victims’ families.
One of its first priorities is to contribute to the national gun control debate.
Sandy Hook Promise jumped into action almost immediately, setting up a Facebook page Dec. 16, two days after the shootings. There are already 19,000 followers.
