The Gun Violence Prevention Political Action Committee
Our Mission – A Campaign to Save Lives
The Gun Violence Prevention Political Action Committee (G-PAC) was founded to counter the political influence of the gun industry and their lobby in Springfield. G-PAC raises the resources necessary to protect and elect public officials with the courage to stand up to the gun lobby.
Who We Are
G-PAC is a non-partisan political action committee.
Every year in Illinois, an average of 1,000 people are killed by gun violence and countless others are seriously injured; most are children. The devastation imposed by this epidemic on our communities and families is unimaginable – it is the price that we are forced to pay for a culture of gun violence that has been allowed to flourish without accountability for far too long.
Polls show that a majority of gun owners and non-gun owners favor alike sensible gun safety measures to save lives. G-PAC provides campaign support to legislators committed to keeping guns out the hands of criminals, gang members, domestic abusers and the dangerously mentally ill.
What We Do
G-PAC’s political program supports endorsed candidates using time tested field and messaging strategies proven to influence single issue, like-minded voters to vote on election day. Our experienced team offers candidate recruitment, training, and strategic campaign support including targeted direct mail and
