The Consortium for Risked-Based Firearm Policy




In order to share the good work you have been doing, we are sending out a monthly update with new studies, projects, and articles that our Consortium members and colleagues 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.


This month, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence welcomed two new staff members, Yasmin Fletcher, JD and Dakota Jablon, MHS, to its policy team. Yasmin joins the policy team as a Staff Attorney and Dakota joins as a Policy Analyst. We are very excited to have them on board as we continue to develop evidence-based gun violence prevention policies. We’ll be in touch in the new year, but in the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or ideas.
