What Brings Us Together?

We come together to reduce community gun violence deaths, and injuries against our children in communities of color, both here in Minnesota as well as nationally

Our organization is managed by mothers who have lost their children to community gun violence and supported by concerned individuals. Despite the loss and pain of our loved ones, MACGV is committed to mending broken hearts by advocating for communities of color and increasing positive alternatives for life - rather than a path that may take a person's life.
