In 2013, guns took the lives of 33,636 Americans in homicides, suicides and unintentional shootings. This is the equivalent of more than 85 deaths each day and more than three deaths each hour. For every person who dies from a gunshot wound, two others are wounded. Every year, approximately 100,000 Americans are victims of gun violence. In addition to those who are killed or injured, there are countless others whose lives are forever changed by the deaths of and injuries to their loved ones.  Gun violence is not an urban issue or a rural issue; it is an issue that touches every corner of our country. Join GPEC/ICHV, a non-profit organization, in our fight to end gun violence!

THE GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION EDUCATION CENTER/ [LINE BREAK] ILLINOIS COUNCIL AGAINST HANDGUN VIOLENCE

The Gun Violence Prevention Education Center (GPEC) and the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV) are combining forces to be a preeminent leader in the fight to reduce death and injury caused by gun violence in Illinois through education, research, organizing and enforcement around public policy. We are preparing to maximize impact by organizing operations, identifying strengths, and strategically expanding the gun violence prevention (GVP) efforts already in progress. Using proven digital and grassroots strategies, GPEC and ICHV will come together to build a powerful network that holds institutions accountable for passing and enforcing common sense gun policies.
