In order to share the good work you have been doing, we are sending out a monthly update with relevant studies, projects, and articles that our Consortium members and others are working on. Please feel free to send us any recently published studies or projects throughout the month, and we will compile and distribute to the group.
Here you will find a press release from the Prosecutors Against Gun Violence (PAGV) and the American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention (ASLGVP). The April 3 press release highlights proposals in 20 states to create Extreme Risk Protection Orders. The Consortium developed the Gun Violence Restraining Order policy approximately four years ago which was detailed in the 2013 report “Guns, Public Health, and Mental Illness: An Evidence-Based Approach for State Policy.” Without the technical expertise, commitment to gun violence prevention, and collaboration from our members, we would not be where we are today.
As usual, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or ideas.
