Who we are
Our mission is to empower people to make a tangible impact on gun violence without waiting for political action.
We're a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by Ian Johnstone, a tech entrepreneur who lost his father to gun violence at the age of 10, and Eric King, an Innovation Specialist with the US Agency for International Development who specializes in tech-enabled solutions to social challenges.
- We believe in common-sense solutions that prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands. We’re not here to debate about the 2nd Amendment; we’re here to take meaningful action towards preventing gun violence.
- We believe that action needs to be taken now. With 85 Americans dying from gun violence each day, we cannot continue to wait for political resolution - we must take action ourselves.
- We respect responsible gun ownership. Many of our most fervent supporters are gun owners, as they have first-hand knowledge of the personal responsibilities of gun ownership and the dangers presented when those responsibilities are not met.
- We believe in the power of communities. Real change comes when coalitions are formed around a shared goal and people are empowered to take action.
