With your courage and commitment, a safer America is possible
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.
On July 1, 1993, an assault weapon rampage at a law firm, Pettit & Martin, in downtown San Francisco ended with eight dead and six wounded, sending shockwaves through the Bay Area's legal community. Within days of the shooting, a group of local attorneys responded by forming the Legal Community Against Violence (LCAV).
In 2016, we announced an exciting opportunity to further expand our influence by merging with Americans for Responsible Solutions, led by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and Navy combat veteran and retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, forming a new force for gun safety legislation, education, research, and advocacy that stretches from coast to coast.
In 2017, we became the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the 501(c)(3) arm of Giffords organization. As two organizations founded by gun violence survivors, we collectively have the courage and commitment it will take to bring Americans together to find unity and challenge the forces that threaten our safety.
