Gun Violence Prevention

The Gun Violence Prevention Task Force (GVP) works to raise awareness and action regarding the needless bloodshed from gun violence.  The GVP promotes and advocates for common-sense gun reform at the national, state and local levels; raises awareness of and supports candidates for public office who commit to gun violence prevention legislation as the best vehicle to ensure public safety; informs and educates WNDC members on important developments surrounding the issue of gun violence; and provides a forum for political action and networking.

The GVP successfully networks with local and national gun violence prevention groups like Moms Demand Action, Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, and Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence.  We welcome members who want to raise awareness and work collaboratively with partners who advocate the end of gun violence.
