New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence (NMPGV) is a 501(c)3 non-partisan organization whose mission is to reduce firearm injury and death through public health, education, advocacy, and public awareness, in order to protect the safety of our families and communities.In January of 2013, a group of concerned citizens formed NMPGV in response not only to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School (where 20 children and 6 adult staff members were fatally shot) but also to the escalating gun violence that was starting to define our state and country. We are several thousand members strong from across the state of New Mexico. We partner with schools, school boards, cities, counties, police departments and interfaith groups as well as national and local organizations to reduce gun violence in our state.
NMPGV works with all levels of the community in order to prevent gun violence. Learn more about our community-first approach to eliminating gun violence and making New Mexico a safer place.
