About Us

CT Against Gun Violence Education Fund is a 501c3 (non-profit) organization whose mission is to educate about the public health crisis of gun violence in America.

We communicate to communities across the state, to legislators, other public officials and the media about the causes of gun violence, strategies and policies that prevent death and injury from firearms.

We share information about the actions individuals can take to save lives in their local communities – such as safe storage of firearms and the use of Connecticut’s Extreme Risk Protection Order that offers a means to remove firearms from individuals who are at imminent risk of harming themselves or others.

Contributions to the CAGV Ed Fund enable us to continue our outreach efforts to raise awareness of the gun violence public health crisis, educate gun violence prevention advocates and share the facts so that citizens and policy-makers know what works when it comes to lowering gun deaths and injuries.
