Everytown for Gun Safety is the largest organization in the country working to prevent gun violence. The original goal was simple: build a counterweight to the gun lobby, powered by a grassroots army that was just as loud and passionate as the NRA.
Ten years later, Everytown and their network of Moms and Students Demand Action volunteers has ten million supporters. This growth has allowed them to change the political calculus on gun safety and pass common-sense laws at all levels of government. But there is still a lot of work to be done: they are focused on building a grassroots movement of volunteers, electing gun sense champions to offices up and down the ballot, additional opportunities for progress in D.C. and statehouses across the country, and holding the gun industry and gun lobby accountable through litigation and investigations.
