VIEW OUR STORY

Gun violence is a serious threat to public safety and it affects communities across the country. Leaders in these communities are all too familiar with the toll gun violence takes and have an essential role to play in addressing it.

In 2006, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and then-Boston Mayor Thomas Menino founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns as an original coalition of 15 mayors. The coalition has since grown to a bipartisan group of more than 1,000 current and former mayors from the smallest towns to the biggest cities in nearly every state.

Our mayors are leaders in advocating for life-saving gun safety reforms from local programs to state and federal legislation.
