Washington, D.C., February 10, 2021 - Brady looks forward to continued and sustained work to work on legislative and regulatory solutions to prevent gun violence in America following a meeting with members of the Biden-Harris Administration. Today’s meeting included gun violence prevention activists and senior staff in the administration, including Director of the Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice and Director of the Office of Public Engagement and Senior Advisor to the President Cedric Richmond.
Brady President Kris Brown shared:
“Today’s meeting was productive and substantive. Directors Rice and Richmond and the Biden-Harris Administration affirmed their commitment to addressing the gun violence epidemic facing Americans today. We are pleased that the administration recognizes the gravity of this issue and look forward to continued discussion with and actions by the administration to begin confronting the ever present threat of gun violence that claims over 100 lives a day.
The administration understands the scope and intersectional nature of gun violence in America and that the majority of Americans are ready for decisive action to ensure future generations are ensured a life free of gun violence. They know that this is a public health threat and that there isn’t a moment to waste. This administration is prepared to take a whole-of-government approach to keep Americans safe and Brady looks forward to working with them to do so.”
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
