Friends—

Today we celebrate a historic victory— President Biden has just announced bold Executive Actions to fight gun violence! [[link removed]]

The Executive Actions are robust and include clear actions to address community gun violence including:

*
Directing
five
federal
agencies
to
immediately
make
changes
to
26
different
programs
to
direct
vital
support
to
community
violence
intervention
programs.
These
changes
could
lead
to
increased
investments
in
community
violence
interventions.
*
Directing
the
U.S.
Department
of
Health
and
Human
Services
to
create
materials
to
educate
states
on
how
they
can
use
Medicaid
to
reimburse
certain
community
violence
intervention
programs,
like
Hospital-Based
Violence
Interventions.

Today’s historic announcement comes after years of working to push our leaders to prioritize gun violence in communities of color, and on the heels of President Biden committing $5 billion dollars to fund evidence-based community violence prevention programs. This commitment, and the Executive Actions announced today were the direct result of our meetings [[link removed]] with the Biden-Harris Administration, and we are proud to say that we have committed allies in this Administration.

This is HUGE and exactly why we started this work, this organization, and the fight with many of you.

In addition, President Biden has just announced that he is nominating David Chipman to direct the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Since the beginning of our organization, he has shown both personally and professionally that he is committed to implementing bold solutions to end all forms of gun violence, including supporting communities of color.

It’s been 8 years since I survived gun violence, and since then over 800,000 people have been directly impacted including family friends, multiple mentees, neighbors, fellow activists in this struggle and so many more. Coming off one of the hardest years for gun violence in recent history, our communities could not have been hurting more for leadership and change...and today we got that.

We started CJAF nearly five years ago to fill a critical policy and organizing gap across the gun violence prevention movement, as the movement leadership largely ignored the concerns of Black, brown, and Indigenous people.

Today we celebrate, but this victory is not the end of our fight. Here are FOUR quick ways you can help today:
