TEAM ENOUGH FOUNDING MEMBERS

In June 2018, Brady launched Team ENOUGH, our youth-led initiative, with founding members and gun violence survivors Robert Schentrup, Aalayah Eastmond, and Adam Friedman, along with eleven other young leaders to serve on the Team ENOUGH Executive Council, the program’s governing body. Together they’ve established a growing number of chapters across the country, established the Team ENOUGH Youth Advocacy Training Program, testified before Congress, spoken with the press, and led thousands at gun violence prevention marches nationwide.

Aalayah Eastmond


Aalayah Eastmond is a 2019 graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. On February 14, 2018, she was in the third classroom attacked by a gunman who murdered 17 students and staff. Turning pain to action, Aalayah has dedicated her life to preventing gun violence in America. She has been specifically vocal about the chronic gun violence that affects young Black people daily, which is particularly important to her because her uncle was shot and killed in Brooklyn, NY. She has spoken at the March For Our Lives, testified before the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, and participated in the March on Washington. She is currently the cultural community and engagement manager, a national spokesperson for Brady, the co-founder of Concerned Citizens D.C., and a graduate of Trinity Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Ever since, Robert has worked tirelessly on the issue of gun violence prevention, serving on the Team ENOUGH Executive Council and with a myriad of organizations across the gun violence prevention space.

Ivan Garcia


Ivan Garcia is an incoming first-year student at UC Davis and is from Oakland, CA. Raised in the Oakland community, Ivan has lived the real experience of fearing gun violence every day and has drawn his activism from witnessing the deep disparities and inequalities within his region. Being raised by a single mother, he witnessed many of these disparities himself, from struggling to make ends meet to having inadequate access to public education, and thus has been able to understand the root causes of violence and institutional issues, including gun violence. Ivan first joined Team ENOUGH in 2019, following a lobby day at the CA State Capitol, and that same year, launched the first iteration of the Team ENOUGH CA Youth Lobbying Collective. After leading the Team ENOUGH CA Youth Lobbying Collective for two semesters, he transitioned to the role of National Youth Lobbying Coordinator, where he oversees all programs for the Youth Lobbying Collective. Throughout this work, Ivan finds it crucial that we analyze the issue of gun violence through an intersectional lens. A lens that acknowledges identities such as his: urban gun violence, as well as Latinx, LGBTQ+, and lower-income communities.

Jasir Rahman


Jasir Rahman is a senior at Henry Clay High School in Lexington, Kentucky. After a loaded gun made its way onto Henry Clay’s campus in 2018, Jasir advocated for increased firearm education for parents and guardians of minors in the state. Before joining Team ENOUGH’s Executive Council, he interned with Charles Booker’s campaign for Senate and with Done Waiting, a grassroots coalition of young people that fights to make progressive change. Jasir hopes to expand Team ENOUGH’s efforts in states like Kentucky where corrupt politicians and public perception about the state’s views have impeded efforts at gun reform — despite the fact that policies such as expanding Brady Background background checks have bipartisan support among voters.
