I got most of my statistics and graphs on gun violence from the Children’s Defense Fund report, “Protect Children, Not Guns” from 2010. http://www.childrensdefense.org/child-research-data-publications/data/protect-children-not-guns.html
The Children’s Defense Fund website also has plenty of other data on social justice issues affecting children and teens and a section on how to “take action.”
This lesson is a work in progress, so please contact me with any questions and make it your own!
