Education to Action: A Guide to Grassroots Advocacy in Washington

Education to Action “ED2AC” is a free workshop and toolkit developed by the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence and implemented in Washington by the Alliance for Gun Responsibility Foundation.

Hosted by community leaders and advocates, Ed2Ac workshops are designed for people whose families and communities are impacted by gun violence and want to take action but may not yet have the tools to advocate for change to prevent gun violence at the local, state, and federal levels.

These tools are not limited to gun violence prevention; they can be applied in any area where an individual wants to advocate for change.

Education to Action teaches three powerful steps:


Learn about effective gun violence prevention strategies and policy approaches, as well as government structures and processes.


Connect with lawmakers, advocacy communities, and the media. Collaborate for change and for gun violence prevention.


Take action with your community and legislators through effective advocacy. Use the power of people to create change in your community.
