Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
Our country is in the grip of a gun violence epidemic. Every American will know a victim of gun violence in their lifetime—this is not normal, and it doesn’t have to be this way.
Giffords is fighting to end the gun lobby’s stranglehold on our political system. We’re daring to dream what a future free from gun violence looks like. We’re going to end this crisis, and we’re going to do it together.
Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund
Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, life-saving laws have been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. Nearly 10 million mayors, moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, students, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your neighborhood. By introducing evidence-based solutions in every town, we can end gun violence.
Violence Policy Center
The Violence Policy Center (VPC) works to stop gun death and injury through research, education, advocacy, and collaboration. Founded in 1988 by Executive Director Josh Sugarmann, a native of Newtown, Connecticut, the VPC informs the public about the impact of gun violence on their daily lives, exposes the profit-driven marketing and lobbying activities of the firearms industry and gun lobby, offers unique technical expertise to policymakers, organizations, and advocates on the federal, state, and local levels, and works for policy changes that save lives.

We each respond differently to trauma. Over the first 1-2 years post-tragedy, our needs will likely be much different than they’ll be 5, 10, or even 25 years later. Depending upon our injuries, we may require surgeries, hospitalizations, medications, and/or therapy. These needs will inevitably change with time. Survivors may receive an outpouring of support short-term when needs have yet to be clearly defined, but 3, 4, or more years down the road, when the attention of the tragedy starts to dissipate or other news stories take precedence, individuals may feel alone and helpless as funding for their injuries runs out. Insurance premiums may rise. Out of pocket expenses may be maximized. Individuals may be forced to choose between treatments they can afford and those they cannot. Conditions like PTSD may be left untreated. This is where VTVCare can help.
