#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence calls on teens to confront gun violence by creating new works of theatre that will spark critical conversations and incite meaningful action in communities across the country. Our mission is to promote playwriting as a tool for self-expression and social change, harnessing this generation’s spirit of activism and providing a platform for America’s playwrights of tomorrow to discover and develop their voices today.
#ENOUGH was launched by Michael Cotey in 2019 shortly after the consecutive mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. By then we had already witnessed a powerful youth movement emerge shortly after the senseless shooting in Parkland, FL the year prior. March for Our Lives, Students Demand Action and other activist groups were organized, passionate, and rightfully angry. Young people took to the streets (and continue to do so) to manifest the change they wanted to see in the world while policymakers continuously failed to rise to the challenge.
Inspired by other similar letters to the incoming administration, we’ve crafted an Open Letter to President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris calling on them to prioritize Ending Gun Violence and Centering Youth Voices in the Conversation.
Add your name to it, and share it with others in your circle – your artists, your audience – to do the same. With hundreds working on this project across the country, we’ve accomplished an incredible feat in creating space for conversation together. Let’s make sure our young people’s voices are heard.
