About

Every

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 six 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.

Our Approach

We are building a movement to:

01
  • Three volunteers in Moms Demand Action and Gun Sense Voter shirts look at a clipboard together

    Pass gun safety laws.

  • Lucy McBath smiles while pointing her finger in the air at a canvassing event

    Elect candidates who will govern with gun safety in mind.

  • A large crowd of Moms Demand Action volunteers pose for a photo at the state capitol on MLK Day in Virginia

    Beat the NRA.

  • Two young girls smile while wearing Students Demand Action t-shirts

    Change how America thinks about gun violence.

  • An Everytown sign is raised in a crowd in front of the Capitol

    End gun violence.

    Students Demand Action is a national movement of high school and college-aged volunteers working to end gun violence.

    Mayors

    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.

    Survivors

    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.

Our Impact

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.
