Gun violence is a public health epidemic that is injuring and killing children at alarming rates. Any death from gun violence is one too many if it's in your family or your community. We must implement common-sense solutions that have been proven to reduce these injuries and deaths.


Ask About Guns

The ASK (Asking Saves Kids) campaign promotes a simple idea with the potential to help keep kids safe. Ask, "Is there an unlocked gun in your house?" before sending your child over to play.

Wear Orange

Every year, Everytown for Gun Safety and partner organizations like the AAP wear orange: both to honor those who have lost their lives and loved ones to gun violence, and to demand a future free from gun violence. Join the movement and #WearOrange on Wear Orange Weekend in June.
