The Gun Violence Surge & Ways To Help

Gun violence remains the leading cause of premature death in the United States. In 2020, nearly 20,000 Americans were killed as a result of gun violence, more than any other year in over the past two decades.  From July 1st to August 1st of this year an unacceptable amount of families and communities were decimated by gun violence: 

  1. Illinois 17 shootings
  2. Texas 10 shootings
  3. California 7 shootings 
  4. Ohio 6 Shootings
  5. Pennsylvania 6 shootings
  6. South Carolina 5 Shootings
  7. Michigan 3 Shootings
  8. New York 3 Shootings
  9. Louisiana 3 Shootings

Too many tragedies have been experienced both individually and collectively – it’s time for senseless gun violence to be put to an end,we need a safer place to call home.

A few steps you can take now to stand up against the terror of gun violence: 

  • Contact your representatives and tell them that you support universal background checks
  • Volunteer at your local gun violence prevention organization 
  • Educate others and share resources 
  • Donate to or join organizations that fight to end gun violence
