The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence is a 501(c)(3) organization and public health think tank that identifies and implements evidence-based policy solutions and programs to reduce gun violence in all its forms.
The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence (Ed Fund) makes communities safer by translating research into policy. The Ed Fund achieves this by engaging in:
Policy Development: The Ed Fund is the gun violence prevention movement’s premier research intermediary and founder of the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy, a group of academics and practitioners who collaborate to develop innovative recommendations for policymakers.
Advocacy: The Ed Fund influences the policy-making process by lobbying, educating policymakers, and disseminating our message through media advocacy and outreach.
Community and Stakeholder Engagement: The Ed Fund works with impacted community members to create a voting bloc trained to advocate for policies that reduce gun violence.
Technical Assistance: The Ed Fund supports policymakers and gun violence prevention advocates by drafting and implementing groundbreaking, evidence-based policy.
