The Everytown Survivor Network is a nationwide community of survivors working together to end gun violence. Throughout the year, we offer events that focus on creating space for survivors of gun violence to be with and learn from one another.

If you are interested in our one-on-one peer support program, SurvivorsConnect, learn more and get connected with a mentor by clicking here.

National Crime Victims Rights Week Event:

Join the Everytown Survivor Network on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:30pm on Zoom. 

Many survivors of gun violence know that all too often, gaining access to VOCA funding and/or victim compensation can be onerous. During this event, we will be speaking with survivors that lead or work at 501c3 organizations supporting survivors of gun violence about how they’ve addressed the barriers to access, how they’ve advocated for expanded access to VOCA funds, and how they’ve acted as changemakers within their communities, supporting other survivors of gun violence when funding was inaccessible or the funding that was received was insufficient.

If you have ever wanted to know more about VOCA, victim compensation, or you lead or work at a gun violence survivor-led or survivor-focused 501c3 organization, this event was designed with you in mind!  Please join us by RSVPing here. 

This is a virtual event on Zoom that will take place on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:30pm ET.  Please register to join us.  If you cannot join us live, please register now and we’ll send you an email with a link to view the recording after the event.

For Wounded Survivors and Caregivers of Wounded Survivors:

Are you a wounded survivor of gun violence, or are you a caregiver for a wounded survivor? If so, we would love to have you join our monthly get-together calls. These calls are led by Cheryl Stumbo, who is a wounded survivor herself, and who relied heavily on caregivers especially in the three years following being shot. These calls are a chance to get together with others with a shared experience and talk about what’s going on in our lives, and how we’re affected by and coping with our changed lives. It’s good to be with others and realize we’re not alone in this.
