Gun Violence in Georgia has become a public health crisis
we can no longer ignore.
Over the past five years in Georgia, there were:
incidents of gun-related violence
deaths due to gun violence
Georgia ranks 18th-highest in the nation for gun-related deaths – 25% higher than the national average.
Yet Georgia also trails other states in its response and efforts to protect our communities.
so, what can we do?
Gun violence is a problem that requires community-wide action. The Georgia Coalition for Safe Communities (GCSC) advocates for policy solutions at the state and federal level, as well as for more education and advocacy in local communities and neighborhoods.
