Welcome to The Educational Fund To Stop Gun Violence and Alliance For Gun Responsibility Foundation Education to Action workshop and communications.


My name is Brandy Grant, Program Manager for the AGR-WA and I am here on behalf of my CEO Renee Hopkins and foundation to invite you all to join the movement in learning about and advocating for responsible and effective gun policy.

The Alliance works to end the gun violence crisis in our community and to promote a culture of gun ownership that balances rights with responsibilities. Through collaboration with experts, civic leaders, and citizens, the Alliance works to find evidenced-based solutions to the crisis of gun violence in our community. Specifically, the Alliance provides paths to take actions that save lives by:

Creating innovative Policy; Advocating for changes in laws; and Promoting Community Education to reduce gun violence.

The Alliance is engaged in this work knowing that ending gun violence is not a sprint, rather, it is a marathon and we have to PACE ourselves for the long haul.

Through Ed2Ac’s three-step process, Educate, Engage, Act, you can make this change happen. These tools are not limited to gun violence prevention; they can be applied in any area where an individual wants to advocate for change.

Looking forward to connecting with you. Please reach out to schedule a workshop and learn more on how to take ACTION.

Alliance for Gun Responsibility


“Where there is no human connection, there is no compassion. Without compassion, then community, commitment, loving-kindness, human understanding, and peace all shrivel. Individuals become isolated, the isolated turn cruel, and the tragic hovers in the forms of domestic and civil violence.”

-Susan Vreeland
