Coach Steve Kerr on Why He Fights to Prevent Gun Violence
Preventing gun violence] is the number one issue for me.” — Coach Steve Kerr
Thirty-six years ago, Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr’s life was shattered when his father was shot and killed. Right now, Coach Kerr is asking you to support Brady and our work to prevent gun violence.
“I can’t emphasize this enough: If we’re going to move forward with Brady’s plan for gun safety reform, we need to join forces to overcome Mitch McConnell and the NRA’s dangerous inaction. Together we’re unstoppable, and I hope you’ll join me in this fight to take action on gun violence.” — Coach Steve Kerr
Our nation is reeling from the massacre at a Texas elementary school. But this much we know: We cannot let the tragedy that unfolded in Uvalde, Texas, happen again. Brady set an ambitious emergency-response goal of $50,000 so we can get to work immediately and demand life-saving legislation like an assault weapons ban and expanded background checks.
Please, will you heed Coach Kerr’s call and donate right now to help us demand real action to end gun violence and save lives?
Gun Violence Survivor & Vice President of Development and Partnerships: Liz Dunning
We’re uniting people from coast to coast, liberal and conservative, young and old, fed up and fired up, to end gun violence.
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.
Talk is the least we can do, which is why Brady’s work is so important. They’re taking action to curb gun violence in achievable, common sense ways by emphasizing education, litigation, and legislation, and by recognizing that gun violence affects everyone in our country, and does outsized damage within black and brown communities.
Invest in Our Safety
More likely than not, your life has somehow been touched by gun violence. Whether it’s your children experiencing lockdown drills or the loss of a loved one, firearms and the human suffering they cause have reached epidemic levels.
To staunch the bleeding requires expertise, dedication, and money.
Brady is unabashed in its request of you, the donor. It needs $2 million to fuel its End Family Fire campaign this year.
Your donation pays for research to target the audiences that most need to hear Brady’s message, to produce the advertisements and to provide training for clinicians about how to talk about the risks of guns in the home and safe storage with patients.
“The next school shooter could be stopped. The suicide that you don’t know your teenager is contemplating with the gun in your closet can be stopped with this campaign,” says Brady President Kris Brown. “And even if it saves just one life, the investment will be worth it.”
