January 2023

The Consortium for Risked-Based Firearm Policy



The new year comes with great expectations. We are excited about our plans for 2023 and thankful for all the opportunities we had to share our work at the Consortium with all of you.


In this new year, we reaffirm our commitment to evidence-based and equitable approaches to gun violence prevention. To reflect on one of our achievements in the past year, we released the Racial Equity Impact Assessment tool and report in collaboration with many other organizations and we are proud to see it become a useful tool for policymakers and others focused on gun violence prevention.


Our newsletter subscription grew 37% in the last year. We hope to continue to be a good resource that adds to your day as we highlight the latest resources, research and upcoming events. Thank you for reading and for sharing our newsletter with colleagues and friends.
