3 Pillars of Francesco's Foundation

3 PILLARS OF FRANCESCO’S FOUNDATION

Francesco’s Foundation stands on three pillars of reform and education each intersecting with the issue of mental health. Confronting ignorance, prejudice, and fear are at the forefront of the Foundation’s activities.

GUN SAFETY & LEGISLATION

Gun logic. Let’s go beyond typical pull quotes and statistics. We should have logical discussions and legislation behind gun safety.

EDUCATING PARENTS & TEACHERS ON LGBTQ+ BULLYING

Sad to think that we are living in 2024 and still having to deal with bullying. Both online and in person. We need to help not only the bullied but also the bully.

TECHNOLOGY REFORM & EDUCATION

You don’t know what you don’t know. Educating parents and teachers on the dangers of what is online and young adults on how to interact with this space.

Diana’s advocacy work in Washington

In addition to the work I have done last year with the Yes Institute, I’d like to share my advocacy work regarding gun violence control laws, particularly lobbying at the federal level for Ethan’s Law. This legislation aims to criminalize access to firearms when minors are present at home, contributing to the protection of children and minors from the risks of gun violence.

FRANCESCO’S FOUNDATION

Metropolitan Palm Beach

Gun violence is now the leading cause of death in child 0-19 years in the United States. Nearly half of those gun deaths are by suicide. The foundation aims to work towards introducing legislation regarding the safe storage of sporting shotguns – those that are not intended for self-defense but for sport, and therefore not protected by the second amendment.
