State of Safety is a new nonprofit that believes that gun deaths are preventable deaths.

The rate of firearm fatalities in Oregon exceeds the national average. We are working to change that by:

  • Educating the public on existing gun laws and gun violence prevention;

  • Promoting gun safety and responsible gun ownership;

  • Measuring Oregonians’ attitudes on firearms;

  • Identifying evidence-based policies to reduce gun violence; and

  • Monitoring compliance with existing state gun laws.

We hope you will join us in our work. Please sign up to stay informed and learn more about how you can get involved.
