Discover Our Approach

We help individuals understand the dangers associated with firearms, the risk factors for gun violence, and the myth of defensive gun use so they can make informed decisions for themselves and their families.

We work to establish and maintain community partnerships, eliminate structural racism, end patterns of under-resourcing, empower community members, and support community violence intervention programs, such as hospital-based services.

Finally, we work to influence societal-level choices, including ensuring consumer product safety, regulating the gun industry, holding the firearm industry accountable, and changing policies and practices. These policies include gun violence prevention laws.
