Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of the Brady organization is to create a safer America for all of us that will lead to a dramatic reduction in gun deaths and injuries.
As the leading voice on gun violence prevention, the Brady Center and Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence continues to bring together millions of Americans behind sensible and effective solutions that save lives. With a proven track record as the only organization to pass federal gun legislation, forty years of service and a focused and relevant three-pronged strategy, Brady is uniquely positioned to lead the social norm change around gun violence.
Brady’s audacious yet achievable goal to cut the number of U.S. gun deaths in half by 2025 is based on a strategy that centers on keeping guns out of the wrong hands through three impact-driven campaigns: (1) a policy focus to "Finish the Job" so that life-saving Brady background checks are applied to all gun sales; (2) to "Stop 'Bad Apple’ Gun Dealers" - the 5 percent of gun dealers that supply 90 percent of all crime guns; and (3) to lead a new national conversation to change social norms around the dangers of guns in the home, ultimately reducing the number of homicides, suicides, and unintentional shootings that happen every day.
