Gun control and gun violence intervention advocates hope the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, will convince federal and state governments to take action again. Nonprofits like March for Our Lives plan to mobilize supporters on June 11 to push elected officials to require universal background checks. That’s just one philanthropic effort in a movement that recognizes politicians have not delivered meaningful action on gun control in America. Other nonprofit, community or advocacy organizations have also gained insight into why gun violence occurs and how to reduce it, including interventions don’t rely on getting legislation passed.
