Ohio Coalition
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 support public health recognition of the gun violence problem.

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence is committed to reducing violence in all forms and against all people.

Incidents of 2020 resulting in the deaths of many unarmed or already-incapacitated black people across the country is heart-breaking. There is much to be done to stop the needless killing of black Americans, who by virtue of their skin color, are often perceived as a threat.

OCAGV supports and wants to be part of the solutions to end the senseless killings of people of color, whether by police or an armed vigilante. We will partner with those that work to end violence, discrimination and racism in
the state and country.
