Brady and Giffords are two organizations dedicated to addressing gun violence in America. June is National Gun Violence Awareness month. Many Americans feel impotent in impacting firearm-related tragedies. Join with Team Brady by wearing orange this June as a means of showing solidarity with advocates of gun safety.
Asking Saves Kids Day is June 21 — this Wednesday. Do your part by asking someone you know if a child has access to an unsecured gun in their home. About 4.6 million kids live around firearms that have not been properly stored. As a physician, I learned long ago prevention is effective in reducing public health problems such as heart disease, COVID-19 and violence. So, take a stand and ask, “Is there an unlocked gun in your home where a kid will be playing?”
