Uniting Communities

CeaseFirePA is building a statewide network of communities taking a stand against gun violence. In cities and towns across Pennsylvania, individuals and organizations have already taken the first steps toward making their neighborhoods safer by launching their own local initiatives to reduce gun violence. CeaseFirePA is working to connect those leaders and magnify the voices calling for change.

If you are involved with a local effort to fight back against violence, please take a stand with us and help build the statewide movement for a safer Pennsylvania. If you would like to start a local effort, get in touch with us, and we’ll get you the tools you need to get started.

Together we are stronger. Join the network today.

Anti-Violence Partneship of Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA - The Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia is a unique organization that focuses on both proactive and reactive responses to violence in the city. We help children and youth resolve conflict nonviolently, while assisting victims and their families to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of violence. Our mission is to end the cycle of violence in Philadelphia through comprehensive and collaborative programs. We stand together with organizations such as CeaseFirePA because we firmly believe that gun violence is a multi-faceted problem and needs a strong proactive approach to curb violence in our neighborhoods.

B-PEP/Coalition Against Violence

PITTSBURGH, PA (The Hill District) - The Coalition Against Gun Violence was launched by the Pittsburgh Black Political Empowerment Project in 2007, and has since been actively working to identify and facilitate the implementation of strategies and initiatives to address the issue of violence and crime that plagues our communities. Diligently working to move our documents from “paper to possibility…from planning to implementation,” the Coalition Against Violence feels that we can dramatically shift the paradigm from having a culture of complacency and complaint about community violence, to fostering a culture of cooperation and collaboration that, we strongly feel, can bring about lasting change and, perhaps, an end to the violence and crime in our communities.

Bucks Safe

Bucks Safe is made up of Bucks County residents who believe in the 2nd Amendment and Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, but who also recognize the urgent need to curb gun violence in our society by examining and addressing a wide variety of causes. We believe that in order to maintain safety in our communities we must fix our broken mental health services infrastructure, provide law enforcement with the tools necessary to protect us, and draw a clear line in the sand between the weapons and ammunition that have a lawful place in our society and those that do not. We believe that by working together, we can make Bucks County and its citizens safer.
