About CeaseFirePA:

CeaseFirePA envisions a world where everyone across the Commonwealth feels safe from gun violence because they are safe. Tragically, gun violence takes the lives of 1,900 Pennsylvanians every year. You are 21 times more likely to die by gun homicide if you are Black. Rural communities lose loved ones to suicide on an alarming basis. Over our two decades of work, we’ve expanded background checks, disarmed abusers and won $185 million for community-based violence prevention programs. We’ve become Pennsylvania’s leading organization working to end this public health crisis as we fight illegal trafficking, boost funding for safer communities, and save the next life from suicide.
