Notes: In America, almost 15,000 children are killed or injured in gun-related incidents every year. People seem to have accepted this “new normal”, and focus on teaching kids how to survive school shootings, rather than preventing them. To highlight this absurdity, Sandy Hook Promise created a campaign of radio spots that start out like typical back-to-school ads. One boy talks about rolling into the school year with his brand-new skateboard, another about his cool new sneakers, a girl talks about making a great first impression with her fashionable new utility belt. But things take a darker turn when it becomes clear that there’s a shooter in the school, and the pupils have to use their new school items to survive. The skateboard is used to smash a window to make an escape route, the sneakers are used to outrun the shooter, the belt becomes a tourniquet. The spots end by saying that the only real back-to-school essential is learning the signs of a shooter, and stopping shootings before they happen. The Sandy Hook “Back-to School” campaign generated 3.9 billion media impressions and was picked up by major news outlets including Fox News, CCN, BBC and The New York Times.
