Public Education Work
Gun safety, public awareness, education, and community mobilizing are on-going. Our outreach programs continue to work with local governments, schools, probation judges, youth in juvenile detention, healthcare agencies, community and faith based groups.
We are working to increase public awareness of the magnitude of the problem, effects, causes and prevention of gun violence.
Dr. Amy Goldberg, a trauma surgeon, speaks to the devastating effects of What Bullets Do to Bodies in a HuffPost April 2017 article by Jason Fagone. As the author says, “The gun debate would change in an instant if Americans witnessed the horrors that trauma surgeons confront every day.”

Gun Violence Programs
Gun Violence Prevention Programs have been shown to increase knowledge about the costs of gun-related violence, to decrease the incidence of gun-related violence, and to help prevent such violence.
For more information on why these programs work, visit:
NMPGV created a Lock Up Your Gun Safety Campaign that includes bus ads, PSAs on locking up your guns, free gunlocks and gun safety brochures and tabling at health fairs and community events on gun safety. If your community would like us to implement this program please contact us.
