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 public health fellows, Ari Davis, MPP and Aerielle Matsangos, MHS, to its policy team. We are very excited to have them on board as we continue to develop evidence-based gun violence prevention policies.
