A Brief History AND MISSION
The Second Amendment Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in June 2016 by Tyler Yzaguirre. The organization’s mission is to educate, activate, and empower individuals to be effectively mobilized for the Second Amendment.
Since the founding, SAI has successfully expanded it’s reach to all corners of the country through it’s national college student program, Students for Self-Defense. Since Students for Self-Defense was launched in October 2016, more than 2,500 students have joined the ranks to fight for their self-defense rights on college campuses.
what DOES SAI DO?
The Second Amendment Institute's most important goal is to educate. In this way, SAI can combat attacks on all American's Constitutional right to bear arms, and aid in the prevention of inappropriate gun control measures.
Disseminating facts also exposes unjustified and incorrect rhetoric. By sharing the truth, SAI may also change the hearts and minds of gun control advocates.
Meanwhile, SAI remains hard at work recruiting the next generation of Second Amendment supporters, including those that stand behind strengthening self-defense policies on college campuses.
