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 3 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.

Program areas at Everytown for Gun Safety

2021 brought new opportunities as the strongest presidential Gun Safety administration in our nation's history was sworn in and a Gun sense majority took over both chambers of congress, but was also a year of colliding public health crises: we continued to confront the deadliest pandemic in a century as well as our nation's raging Gun violence crisis. While 2021 brought some challenges, the Gun Safety movement was able to achieve significant victories, and once again, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund led that progress at the federal, state and local levels to keep our communities safe. In the culmination of a years-long effort in the legislative, regulatory, litigation, and grassroots arenas to push for Action on ghost guns by Everytown and our moms demand Action and students demand Action volunteers, president joe biden announced in april that the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives (atf) would issue a new rule on ghost guns the fastest-growing Gun Safety problem in the nation. Throughout the year, Gun violence survivors, moms demand Action and students demand Action volunteers partnered with democratic, republican and independent lawmakers across the country to pass major Gun Safety legislation and block dangerous bills that would weaken Gun laws and exacerbate Gun violence. And while the covid-19 pandemic continued to change the way volunteers were able to lobby their lawmakers, moms demand Action and students demand Action volunteers didn't miss a beat. In fact, our eighth annual training conference in august, Gun sense university, was the largest ever with more than 2,200 volunteer leaders and Gun violence survivors gathering virtually. As 2021 surpassed 2020 as the worst year for Gun violence in over 20 years, Everytown worked with policymakers, the media and the public to underscore the urgency of Action on Gun safety.additionally, the 2021 elections once again proved that Gun Safety is an issue for candidates to run and win on at the federal, state and local level. Everytown Action Fund awarded 550 general election Gun sense candidate distinctions while 18 moms demand Action volunteers ran for office and won across the country as our leaders continue to make the move from advocating for Gun Safety laws to writing them.
