However, the success of Center experts and other gun violence prevention advocates shows passing effective laws is possible even on an issue as politically polarizing as the role of guns in the United States. What can you learn from their success on the national, state and local levels? Learn about the 5 research-backed solutions that take a public health approach to solving the gun violence epidemic. Hear from leading advocacy experts about getting their priorities passed and how it relates to your next advocacy campaign.
