#walkthetalkamerica would like to thank @novoarms for letting us spread our message at such an empowering event!

Our 9th Annual NRA Women On Target Clinic is down in the books..there was no better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than to empower them to protect themselves and their loved ones. What an amazing turnout!!! We had a total of 82 women/52 NRA Certified Instructors & several vendors/supporters. The ladies spent the day learning how to safely handle & shoot Pistols, Rifles, Shotguns and an intro to Archery. They also learned about situational awareness, active shooter, mental health awareness and Florida Law in regards to firearms. We owe the success of this event & heartfelt appreciation to all of the instructors, vendors and supporters. there is no way we would be able to do this without your help!! More pictures of the event will be posted soon. MARK YOUR CALENDAR for what will mark our 10th Annual WOT - MARCH 6, 2021!! @nationalrifleassociation @nrawomen @projchildsafe @taurususa @breakthrough_clean @bangbangjewels @stickyholsters @official_warrior_gunrange @truenorthprotection @menocal_international_training @go.archery @walkthetalkus @blackscorpiongear @miamifriendsofnra @ccc_miami #trailgladesrange #nrawomenontarget #refusetobeavictim #empoweringwomen #2a #merica #internationalwomensday

Our Mission

Walk The Talk America™ funds research and development for outreach and promotion of mental health to reduce the misconceptions and prejudices that exist when it comes to mental illness and firearms. We believe we can be a catalyst for change by working with experts in the mental health industry.

Our Goal

Our goal is to raise awareness and create a change in the misunderstandings regarding mental illness and firearms by bringing together industry leaders to reduce gun violence, negligence, suicide and the trauma created by these events. Develop programs for suicide prevention, firearms negligence, trauma mitigation, and child safety.

Collaboration

We have created alliances between the leading experts and organizations in the Firearms and Mental Health Industries. They have the knowledge and proper call to action to reach those who may want the help but have either been ignored or simply have been too afraid to seek help, because of the misconceptions that come with mental illness.

Commitment

We have also established commitments from several experienced and concerned colleagues in the firearm industry that are willing to donate their time, resources, and money to help.  Historically, both industries have cared deeply about this issue but have never been connected.

Community

WalktheTalkAmerica.org is a way to bring people together. The professionals and academics from both industries are moving forward with combining efforts, information, and resources to achieve our vision for the future.
