Against Gun Violence

What We Do

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, working to prevent gun violence through education, advocacy and public awareness.

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence (OCAGV) is the state’s recognized resource on current information regarding gun violence and gun related legislation.

The Coalition monitors current developments at the national and state levels and provides statewide education on non-violence and safety for children and families. The Coalition works with other organizations and individuals to facilitate community solutions and we support public health recognition of the gun violence problem.
