Women's Coalition for Common Sense

The Women’s Coalition for Common Sense is as a platform for women leaders from across industries and sectors to discuss the problem of the nexus between gun violence and domestic violence. It builds on the success of Congresswoman Giffords’ Protect All Women Network, which began in conjunction with the first-ever Senate hearing in July 2014 on domestic violence firearms homicides.

Now, the Women’s Coalition for Common Sense supports the cause, promotes commonsense changes to our laws, raises awareness about gun crime and domestic abuse, and empowers women to reduce gun violence in their communities.
