Internal Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Anti-Racism Work
Our work at Everytown for Gun Safety envisions a nation free from gun violence. We recognize that this requires a diverse, equitable, and inclusive staff, volunteers, and partnership network that utilizes the knowledge, skills, and experiences of different groups and peoples. Our work internally fosters principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and utilizes these principles to drive best practices in recruitment, retention, education, engagement, and overall staff growth.
This page provides more information about our internal DEI and Anti-Racism work. As we continue to build this page, you will find more content from our team and other staff.
