Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund
The Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund was formed both to educate the public about the detrimental effects of illegal guns in order to reduce gun violence in the United States and to lessen the burdens of government by assisting American local governments and law enforcement agencies in their efforts to develop effective policies to combat illegal guns. The Fund supports programmatic activities of approximately 1000 mayors in the coalition of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, as well as other government officials and law enforcement leaders.
Sandy Hook Promise Foundation
Sandy Hook Promise’s mission is to create a culture engaged in preventing shootings, violence, and other harmful acts in schools. Sandy Hook Promise is a moderate, above-the-politics organization that supports sensible program and policy solutions that address the “human side” of gun violence by preventing individuals from ever getting to the point of picking up a firearm to hurt themselves or others. Our words, actions, and impact nationwide are intended to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation.
Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence
Brady is uniting Americans, coast to coast, gun owners and non gun owners alike, to end the gun violence epidemic that plagues America. A complicated problem requires a comprehensive approach, so Brady works across Congress, the courts and communities to fight for common sense gun laws, holding bad actors accountable, and to educate everyone on the issues so we are all part of the solution.
Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the nation’s leading policy organization dedicated to researching, writing, enacting, and defending proven laws and programs, is on a mission to save lives from gun violence by shifting culture, changing policies, and challenging injustice.
Violence Policy Center
Guns killed nearly 49,000 Americans in 2021. Since 1988, the Violence Policy Center (VPC) has worked to stop gun violence through research, education, advocacy, and collaboration. Approaching gun violence as a public health issue, as opposed to solely a crime issue, we inform the press and public about the impact of gun violence on their daily lives, expose the profit-driven marketing and lobbying activities of the firearms industry and gun lobby, offer unique technical expertise to policymakers, organizations, and advocates on the federal, state, and local levels, and work for policy changes that save lives. The VPC firmly believes the answer to reducing gun violence lies in applying the decades-long lessons of public health injury prevention and consumer product safety regulation.
Alliance for Gun Responsibility Foundation
We use a data driven, public health approach to promote community education and programs to reduce gun violence.
