Together with our sister organization, CSGV has been working more deliberately to engage communities of color in our advocacy efforts.
In pursuit of this goal, our sister organization the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence has developed an advocacy training workshop focused on impacted communities — specifically communities of color. This workshop, called “Education to Action” or “Ed2Ac,” is designed to involve African-Americans and other communities directly impacted by gun violence in the statewide policymaking process. Thanks our sister organization’s efforts, we have seen much more robust participation in our network from both African-American elected leaders and community members.
Through community organizing, outreach, and education, we will continue to organize and mobilize a diverse coalition of grassroots and grasstops advocates. Learn more here.
