Delaware County United for Sensible Gun Policy collaborates with allied organizations at all levels. A united movement with a strong organizational infrastructure will help us activate fellow citizens—the majority of whom already favor common sense reforms—and win concrete victories that save lives and bring security to urban, suburban, and rural communities.
National Gun Violence Prevention Organizations
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, founded Giffords as a way to encourage elected officials to stand up for both the 2nd amendment and safer communities by communicating directly with the constituents that elect them.

Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
We seek to secure freedom from gun violence through research, strategic engagement and effective policy advocacy.
Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. More than 2 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.
Heeding God’s Call
Heeding God’s Call is a faith-based movement to prevent gun violence. We unite people of faith in the sacred responsibility to protect our brothers, sisters and children.
Moms Demand Action
Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to reduce drunk driving, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was created to demand action from legislators, state and federal; companies; and educational institutions to establish common-sense gun reforms. We are a non-partisan grassroots movement of American mothers demanding new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws, loopholes and policies that for too long have jeopardized the safety of our children and families.
Sandy Hook Promise
The mission of Sandy Hook Promise is twofold.
Help our community heal by providing immediate and long-term financial, in-kind and other aid to family members who lost loved ones, to survivors, to teachers and staff, to first responders and to our community, helping each and every one through this horrific tragedy.
Advocate for change by bringing together, in local and national dialogue, the great majority of Americans who agree that we must find and implement common sense solutions to address the causes of gun violence in order to save lives in our communities and our country.
