The conversation starts here.

With the combined expertise of public health, social welfare, public policy, and criminal justice experts, the Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium informs the public and provides evidence-based, data-driven policy recommendations to disrupt the cycle of firearm-involved mass shootings, homicides, suicides, and accidents.
