When Prayers Aren't Enough

Columbine. Aurora. Sandy Hook. San Bernardino. Orlando. Las Vegas. Sutherland Springs. Parkland.

“When Prayers Aren’t Enough” is an upcoming documentary film that will explore the mass shooting epidemic in the United States by talking to brave Survivors of these events and the experts leading the way to stop them.

We the people, are in this together but we need your help!

Although we have completed several interviews with a volunteer crew, we need your help to fund the completion of the project including the significant amount of travel that will be involved. 

“When Prayers Aren’t Enough” is a film produced by a Survivor of the Las Vegas Massacre that occurred on October 1st, 2017. Our goal is to complete this film with our mission intact - finding clear cut solutions to the mass shooting epidemic and providing a platform for Survivors to share their stories.



Fast Facts:

In 2018 alone there have been 42 mass shootings in the US, resulting in 72 deaths and 168 gun-related injuries.*

Recent polls found that 50% of gun owners support tougher legislation and 97% of those surveyed support universal background checks.**

We polled 500 of the 22,000+ Las Vegas Massacre Survivors - this is where they currently live.
