As the only national gun violence prevention organization to ever pass federal gun safety legislation that has made all Americans safer, the Brady Campaign knows what it takes to win the fight against gun violence.
It took six years, seven votes in Congress, and three presidential administrations to pass the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act. To rally citizens into a force more powerful than the gun lobby, it took the extraordinary perseverance of Jim and Sarah Brady — plus thousands of supporters of this organization that now bears their name. To put the safety of the American people first, it took countless hours of lobbying, calling out elected leaders, and holding them accountable. To ensure we could keep fighting day after day, it took tens of thousands of individual contributions from generous people like you.
There's no question it was all worth it.
