2. Crowdfunding Campaign
3. Guns are removed
Our campaigns are led by coalitions of local volunteers who want to take action on gun violence. Join one of our active campaigns, or help us launch a campaign in your community. Once there is a team on the ground, we'll launch a campaign. We work with you to raise funds for a gun buyback in your city through our crowdfunding platform. Anyone can donate, and all funds raised go directly to removing guns from your community. We partner with your local law enforcement to operate a gun buyback according to best practices. Anyone in the community can turn in a gun, no questions asked. All guns collected are safely destroyed.
The result: Safer communities.
