Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition


Protecting our children, families and communities from gun violence

The Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition (ILGVP) advocates for common sense, evidence-based gun violence prevention measures that will save lives in Illinois.

The Coalition achieves this mission through building grassroots outreach, supporting legislative policies to reduce easy access to firearms, and working in partnership with key stakeholders, including faith and community groups, families and survivors of gun violence, law enforcement, and elected officials to end the gun violence crisis in Illinois.

It’s quick and easy to message to your Governor. Emails from you let our leaders know Illinoisans are serious about common sense gun violence prevention measures.




Together we can
end gun violence
