We’re the largest gun violence prevention organization in America—and we’re winning.
Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, life-saving laws have been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. Nearly 10 million mayors, moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, students, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your neighborhood. By introducing evidence-based solutions in every town, we can end gun violence.
We are building a movement to:
Elect candidates who will govern with gun safety in mind.
Demand action from our elected officials.
Change how America thinks about gun violence.
End gun violence.

Mothers and others
Moms Demand Action is the nation’s largest grassroots volunteer network working to end gun violence, with more than 700 local groups across the country and a chapter in every state. Volunteers campaign for new, strong solutions to lax gun laws that jeopardize the safety of our families.
Students Demand Action is a national movement of high school and college-aged volunteers working to end gun violence. Volunteers organize within their schools and communities to educate their peers, register voters, and demand common-sense solutions to this national crisis. Students Demand Action has active volunteers in every state and nearly 400 groups across the country.
Since its creation, Mayors Against Illegal Guns has grown from 15 mayors of major American cities to more than 2,000 current and former mayors. The bipartisan coalition is united around three common goals: advancing enforcement and data collection strategies to prevent gun violence; investing in victim services and violence intervention programs to address gun violence; and advocating for gun safety legislation at the local, state, and federal level.
The Everytown Survivor Network is a nationwide community of survivors working together to end gun violence. The Survivor Network connects survivors to each other, amplifies the power of survivor voices, offers trauma-informed programs, provides information on direct services, and supports survivors who choose to become advocates.
Ultimately, our movement exists to end gun violence and save lives.
Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers across the country, we have won unprecedented victories against the gun lobby—at the ballot box, in state legislatures, and in corporate America.See Our Victories
