The Sandy Hook Promise group held a news conference Monday in which photos of the young victims were displayed.

An ad-hoc group formed in the wake of the Newtown massacre has launched a nonprofit group, “Sandy Hook Promise.”

Its mission is to honor “with action” those killed in the rampage, and is made up of community members — including first responders and victims’ families.

One of its first priorities is to contribute to the national gun control debate.

Sandy Hook Promise jumped into action almost immediately, setting up a Facebook page Dec. 16,  two days after the shootings. There are already 19,000 followers.
