Giffords Women’s Coalition

Join the Fight

The Giffords Women’s Coalition focuses on engaging women leaders in preventing gun violence. The Coalition combats gun violence against women and families by urging action to:

  • Prevent stalkers and abusers from having easy access to guns
  • Close the background check loopholes in our federal laws that let felons and domestic abusers legally buy and own firearms
  • Strengthen existing laws and ensure lawmakers and stakeholders have the resources and training they need to prevent and address gun violence against women
