Everytown for Gun Safety is the nation's largest gun violence prevention organization with grassroots advocacy networks of moms, students, and survivors of gun violence. Alongside these networks, Everytown also researches the root causes of and solutions to gun violence in America. As part of that research, Everytown has created a number of public tools that help researchers and policymakers understand and work to prevent gun violence. These tools include an economic cost calculator that demonstrates the monetary cost of gun violence, a city dashboard that compiles city-level murder and gun homicide data and trends, an online clearinghouse of data-informed gun violence reduction strategies, and more. Senior Director of Local Initiatives Katie Appel Duda and Senior Research Associate Andrew Edelman will present these tools and discuss how decision makers can use them to advocate for more gun violence prevention initiatives in their communities.
