Events for Activist Groups

Community Safety and Violence Prevention

Three recent mass shootings have left America reeling once again. President Trump and congressional leaders have spoken up to support red flag laws, reviving a push for federal legislation around evidence-based policy that allows a court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person in crisis threatening harm to themselves or others. Utah has proposed its own red flag law, carefully developed by a wide range of stakeholders to prevent firearm suicides and other deaths, including mass shootings, while protecting Second Amendment rights. Learn about Utah’s red flag bill (the Extreme Risk Protection Order bill) and specific things YOU can do to help get it passed! This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
