Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence
Jen began volunteering in the gun violence prevention movement following the Sandy Hook School shooting in 2012. She led a small, grassroots advocacy organization, Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence since 2015. Recently joining the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence as the Director of State Affairs, she is responsible for developing legislative policy support for partner states across the country. She provides and translates research for advocates, stakeholders, and partners to support local efforts throughout the country to reduce gun deaths and injuries.
Founded in 1978, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence 501(c)(3) is a public health think tank that identifies and implements evidence-based policy solutions and programs to reduce gun violence in all its forms. They work to create and support evidence-based policy solutions and programs all across the country. We pursue this goal through policy development, advocacy, and community and stakeholder engagement.
