Every time another bullet fires in a school, we feel that much more helpless to stop the next. One More Day asks its audience to look at the problem of school gun violence differently.
“The cell phones in the pockets of the dead students were still ringing when we were told that it was wrong to ask why.“ – Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker, April 30, 2007.
Change can only come from taking small steps together, and working with director Andrew Wonder, Station Film’s original campaign One More Day asks its audience to look at the problem of school gun violence differently: Regardless of political stance, can anyone say that your right to a firearm is more important than a child’s life?
If an individual with a gun can have such a big impact on a school, why can’t a student who wants to make a positive difference? Rather than focusing efforts on gun control specifically, One More Day’s focus is on the small daily steps students can take to make schools a safer and more supportive environment.
During school visits and group discussions, Andrew and Station ask students and teachers to create pledges about how they will help their school go #OneMoreDay without gun violence. From these discussion and pledges, case study videos are created to share with other schools and parents to continue the discussion.
