What we aim to solve New!

Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.

But something is changing. More than 4 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

Mobilizing grassroots supporters
Connecting and amplifying the voices of survivors of gun violence

Pressuring lawmakers to pass gun-sense laws.

Moms convinced Starbucks to put families first and keep guns out of its stores.

Moms convinced Facebook to take steps to limit illegal gun sales on its platforms.

Everytown for Gun Safety helped Minnesota pass a law to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Washington passed these laws in 2014.

In the NRA's home state of Virginia, Everytown invested over $2 million, and helps get out the vote, and sweeps five gun safety candidates into office on Election Day. Every candidate endorsed by Everytown in the 2017 election wins.
