The Denver Accord: A Comprehensive Plan To Reduce Gun Violence

 

Presented by GVPedia

 The Denver Accord is a comprehensive gun violence prevention platform, led by GVPedia and supported by more than 40 organizations nationally, designed to guide policymakers’ efforts to reduce gun violence in the United States. It combines best practices from across the country with evidence-based research to create a comprehensive and effective set of policies and programs intended to stop the scourge of gun violence.  The Denver Accord includes four guiding principles and nine policy positions that, working in conjunction with each other, will stem the epidemic. This is the first in a series of fact sheets outlining those nine policy positions. There is no single solution to gun violence in America but it is clear that more guns do not make people safer. It is a multifaceted problem that requires a comprehensive solution.

As part of our work to provide unbiased resources about gun violence prevention policy, GVPedia is releasing a series of fact sheets about the 9 policy priorities recommended by the Denver Accord. While our intent was to release them in chronological order, given current discussions about how to implement better community policing and police reform, we are releasing section 8 relative to community policing today. We hope this comprehensive overview of data and best practices will help in your advocacy work.
