CSGV’s guiding principle is simple: We believe that all Americans have a right to live in communities free from gun violence. We pursue this goal through policy development, strategic engagement, and effective advocacy.
CSGV is a thought leader in the modern gun violence prevention movement. Drafting, passing, and implementing evidence-based legislation is our number one priority. While legislative gridlock has largely stymied gun legislation at the federal level, CSGV has worked hard to secure major victories in the states. In recent years, we have worked with scientific experts to develop the Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO), a law that allows law enforcement and family members to temporarily remove firearms from a loved one in crisis.
Our commitment to addressing gun violence in all its forms — from suicide to intimate partner homicide to the shootings that never make headlines — sets us apart.
