High rates of gun violence are an undeniable tragedy of life in today’s America. And while mass shootings grab the headlines, everyday gun violence in our most vulnerable communities is no less a pressing concern.

How can philanthropy play a positive role in reducing gun violence in America? How can contributions to research and advocacy efforts, and making our own voices heard, support those who are leading the charge, including young people and persons of color who have been so deeply affected? 

Join us for a vigorous conversation about how the philanthropic sector has stepped up to address gun violence in innovative and unexpected ways.

  • The national and local landscape (assault weapons conversation versus every day gun violence) 
  • How to use your organization’s financial strength to pressure companies to impose restrictions on the sale of firearms
  • How to treat gun violence like a public health crisis and invest in rigorous research
  • How to support movement building by young people of color
  • How to work with media to shift the gun violence narrative(s) 
  • Update on red flag laws
