When it comes to addressing gun violence, doctors and medical students have proven ourselves to be one of the most effective messengers.
Together, we have made national and international news to raise awareness for the 20-year ban on gun violence research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We’ve led over 100 of the Nation’s leading medical and public health groups — including the American Medical Association-– to support ending the effective ban on gun violence research. Our voices are having a tremendous impact.
In order to keep up this important work we must chip in more than our time. We need to raise funds to keep fighting to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer. Without your generous donation, Doctors for America won’t be around to fight these important battles.
As doctors, we know the long-lasting devastation that comes with gun violence, with 91 Americans who die each day and the 108 who are injured. It is so important for us to keep speaking up. There has never been a better time to maximize your donation. Please consider giving today.
