New Website Provides Vital Gun Violence Prevention Resources
The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence’s new website compiles public health research, data, and evidence-based policy recommendations to address the American gun violence epidemic.
The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence (est 1978) — affiliate organization of America’s oldest gun violence prevention organization the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence — is proud to announce a valuable new tool for those seeking to understand gun violence: www.EFSGV.org.
The new site will serve as a comprehensive resource for gun violence prevention advocates, activists, and organizations, as well as researchers and reporters. It compiles data, research, and evidence-based recommendations for addressing America’s gun violence epidemic.
