Gun Violence Prevention Resources

In September 2022, MCF hosted a conversation about philanthropy's role in reducing gun violence. Presenters explored various strategies including research, education, and policy solutions that seek to reduce gun violence through an evidence informed, public health approach, and make communities safer.

  • Chanda Smith Baker, Chief Impact Officer and Senior Vice President, The Minneapolis Foundation 
  • Tim Daly, Program Director, Gun Violence Prevention & Justice Reform, The Joyce Foundation and Chair, Fund for a Safer Future
  • Dr. Jillian Peterson, Associate Professor - Criminal Justice, Hamline University and Founder, The Violence Project
