Today, gun violence is an urgent public health and human rights issue in New Haven, and the city has seen dangerous levels of youth gun violence. According to a study conducted by the Community Alliance of Research and Engagement into six low-income neighborhoods of New Haven, 73% of residents have heard gun shots more than once; 19% heard them weekly or more. Roughly 30% report a family member or close friend had been hurt by violence. If, like us, you think these numbers are too high, please help our effort to end gun violence in New Haven.
We have partnered with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids of New Haven, the Yale New Haven Hospital’s Injury & Violence Prevention Program, and the New Haven Police Department on a buyback occurring on December 14th, 2019.

We had our first successful gun buyback in Philadelphia on Saturday, June 8th. Thank you to all of our sponsors and the support from everyone who made the Fire Arm Education Day possible.
