The Company Contrast Navigating the Non-Profits – Students Demand Action {Issues: 1st Amendment, Life, 2nd Amendment}

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at popular companies that either score well or score poorly and then try to provide alternatives that either better align with your 2ndVote values or should be avoided to the best of your ability. This series is called The Company Contrast – Navigating the Non-Profits, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Students Demand Action (2.67).

Students Demand Action, like Moms Demand Action, is one of the many off-shoot organizations that stems from Michael Bloomberg’s gun control activism machine, Everytown for Gun Safety, which is an organization that funnels millions of dollars toward stripping American’s of their right to bear arms. However, Students Demand Action is particularly troublesome because their implicit objective is to further weaken the future of America’s gun culture by indoctrinating children, teens, and college-age students into believing that guns are inherently evil and that they as lowly civilians have no business possessing them. So not only does Students Demand Action receive poor ratings based on the actions of their parent organization, but they also lose points on Education for their efforts related to schools, students, and campuses. 

On the other hand, one organization that is doing good works on campuses across America is Turning Point USA (4.33). Founded by Conservative personality, Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA focuses on promoting and empowering conservatism on college campuses. With university students being some of the most ideologically and politically impressionable people, college campuses have become a battleground for molding future generations and future voters. And with campus culture being what it is nowadays, many conservative students feel like they can’t be vocal, or even identifiable as a conservative, without facing ferocious criticism. With significant donations to organizations like Prager University, which promotes Life, 1st Amendment, and Environmental stewardship, and their promotion of 2nd Amendment rights, TPUSA earns high scores on several 2ndVote key issues.
