Your Impact

You are helping us win against gun violence

When you support Brady, you ensure that our mission is carried out in the following key areas:

Education

Understanding the issues and supporting common-sense solutions is the only way to fight America’s gun violence epidemic. That’s why, Brady provides everything you need to know from the latest legislation, research, statistics, and personal stories. There is a lot of misinformation out there that needs to be corrected, and your support enables Brady to create a force of educated activists.

Hear from Aalayah Eastmond, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor and Team ENOUGH Executive Council member who turned outrage into action and used her education on gun violence to testify in front of Congress, moving her audience to tears:

Legislation

From our beginning in 1974, Brady has been focused on common-sense gun laws. With your support, we work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to close loopholes in the current gun laws and pass new legislation to prevent gun violence and save lives. This includes expanding Brady Background Checks to all gun sales and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Today, your contributions enable us to continue our namesake’s legacy of bipartisanship by reaching across the aisle, working with gun owners and non-gun owners alike, to make our country safer for all. 

Kelley Byrdsong became an advocate for gun reform after her father was shot and killed by a man who purchased a gun online. She and her brother were with their father at the time, but luckily survived the attack. Hear her story and why closing legislative loopholes is critical for saving lives:

Litigation

Because of supporters like you, we have been able to argue and win before state supreme courts, trial courts, and federal appeals courts, argue or file legal briefs in 44 states, and help win important victories in the United States Supreme Court. In addition to donor-supported efforts, Brady’s Legal Alliance works with hundreds of lawyers and firms that contribute their passion and time — pro bono — to reform the corporate gun lobby and secure justice for the victims and survivors of gun violence.

The refusal of national-level politicians to pass any legislation to improve the gun regulations infuriates me. There have been state-level advances, but much remains to be done to change the gun culture in this country.
