2023 New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Policy Agenda


Dear Charles,

New York State lawmakers returned to Albany this week to resume the state legislative
session and focus on New York State's budget.  As legislators negotiate their priorities,
we need your help to ensure that lawmakers champion new state measures that will prevent gun violence by investing in our communities and young people. Take action TODAY and click here to tell your state legislators to pass these bills!

1. The School Anti-Violence Education Act (S.4598/A.4917)

2. Medicaid Reimbursements to Expand Community Violence Intervention Services (S.580/A.2893)

3. Fair Access to Victim Compensation (S.214/A.2105)

4. Excise Tax on Ammunition Sales to Fund Violence Intervention Programs (S.270/A.9553A)

These are evidence-based, trauma-informed solutions that will make New Yorkers
safer.  You can learn more about our policy priorities here.

Thank you for taking action and saving lives!

In Solidarity,

Rebecca G. Fischer, Executive Director
