2020 Virtual Conference

Leading the Movement to Prevent Gun Violence

With opening remarks by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, hear from national experts and grassroots leaders who have made California the national model for gun reform

September 21-25, 2020; Hosted by Brady California

California has the strongest gun laws in the nation, and they are making a difference. From 1993 to 2018, California’s firearm mortality rate declined by 57 percent — almost four times the decrease in the rest of the nation. At least part of this success can be attributed to Brady California leaders, who have helped pass more than 80 gun safety laws in the last 15 years alone.

In addition to opening remarks by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sessions feature speakers from Brady, Team ENOUGH, Giffords, Community Justice Action Fund (CJAF), and more. While all sessions are free, donations are appreciated.
