15,000 Pennsylvainans have died from gun violence in the decade since 20 children and six educators were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.

Families of gun violence victims file brief with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, taking on firearm preemption laws
Residents of Philadelphia and Allegheny County who have lost family members to gun violence, and CeaseFirePA filed their brief in their appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in their case challenging Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption laws.
In the last two years, Pennsylvania and municipalities across the Commonwealth have invested more than $170 million in violence prevention programs. The investment was made possible by hundreds of millions of federal funding provided by the Biden-Harris Administration. CeaseFirePA Education Fund’s Executive Director highlighted success stories and the need for continued focus at a special White House event on Thursday, September 28th.
“Gun violence is a preventable catastrophe waiting to be stopped. We are turning our belief in a safer world into action and honoring those already lost to this crisis. Together, our advocacy will save a life.”
Adam Garber, CeaseFirePA Executive Director
