Gun Violence Prevention Action Committee

Mission Statement

Protecting our children, families and communities from gun violence

The Gun Violence Prevention Action Committee (GVPAC) advocates for common sense, evidence-based, gun violence prevention measures that will save lives in Illinois. The Committee pursues this mission by (1) encouraging grassroots activism through community outreach and legislative action, 2) sharing information and resources, 3) fostering collaboration and connections among advocates who are working to reduce all types of violence, and (4) working in partnership with key stakeholders, including faith and community groups, families and survivors of gun violence, law enforcement and elected officials to end the gun violence crisis in Illinois.
