The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) is a 501(c)(4) organization that was founded in 1974. We seek to secure freedom from gun violence through research, strategic engagement and effective policy advocacy.
Our organizational structure is unique among national gun violence prevention organizations. CSGV is composed of 47 national organizations working to reduce gun violence. Our coalition members  include religious organizations, child welfare advocates, public health professionals, and social justice organizations. This diversity of member organizations allows us to reach a wide variety of grassroots constituencies who share our vision of non-violence.
CSGV’s guiding principle is simple. We believe that all Americans have a right to live in communities free from gun violence.

Bar and bat mitzvah students could hold bake sales to raise money for our cause. Alternatively, it would be great if the students could put up posters around school that show which states are forcing public colleges and universities to allow guns on campus so that perspective students and faculty can educate themselves before they make an important life decision. Or choose an issue such as ‘Guns and Mental Health’ or ‘Universal Background Checks’ and become an advocate for our cause!  Check out our website for more issues you may support as your mitzvah project.
