  • Providing forums for UCAN youth and supporters to interact with, learn from and inform our legislators
  • Serving on committees and in membership groups, supporting our partners and our industry
  • Hosting, working at and attending events to introduce communities and individuals to UCAN
  • Raising awareness about gun violence and how it affects our youth
  • Working with young people to support their advocacy efforts
