To reduce gun violence in Maryland through evidence-based solutions.
Our work is guided by our values: a commitment to address gun violence in all its forms, from suicide, to intimate partner homicide, to mass shootings, to the daily shootings that never make headlines; the integrity to embrace evidence-based policies and accurate statistics; the determination to find thoughtful solutions; and a priority to support community-led implementation of programs.
Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence (MPGV) is a leader in the state level gun violence prevention movement and is dedicated to fighting the corporate gun lobby and its agenda, which seeks to undermine and weaken Maryland’s gun laws. We are the only Maryland-based organization that actively works to defeat dangerous legislation proposed by gun rights extremists.
MPGV educates the public and lawmakers on gun violence prevention in many ways, including leading forums on existing laws and "Advocacy 101" trainings on Maryland policies; empowering youth and impacted communities to raise their voices; and working with partners to address the root causes of violence. At MPGV, we collaborate with partner groups to create a united gun violence prevention front and amplify our voices.
