WI Budget Action Hub for Gun Violence Prevention

Governor Evers included many gun violence prevention efforts in his 2021-2023 biennial Wisconsin budget proposal, including

  • funding a violence interruption grant program
  • requiring background checks to be conducted for firearm sales
  • devising an extreme risk protection injunction procedure

Please demand that the members of Wisconsin’s Joint Committee on Finance and your own legislators prioritize Wisconsinites’ safety by keeping these lifesaving gun violence prevention solutions in Wisconsin’s budget. By emailing, tweeting, submitting a comment, and/or calling, you can make a difference!

Here is a sample message for email, tweet. comment, or call:

Wisconsin needs lifesaving background checks, extreme risk protection orders (ERPO), and funding for community-based violence intervention and prevention programs (VIPP) in our 2021-2023 budget! I urge you to support them.

Send a message to your legislators and the members of the Wisconsin’s Joint Committee on Finance.
