​Project Safe Aurora

​In accordance with the Reimagine Public Safety Act​ and in unity with our partners, we envision an Aurora where every individual is empowered, supported, and thrives in peace and safety; a community so resilient and unified that the thought of turning to gun violence fades away, making Aurora a beacon of a violence-free future.

Our mission is to foster awareness of gun violence, build br​​​idges within the community, and advocate for systemic changes that protect and uplift every resident of Aurora to reduce gun violence. Through research, community collaboration, and innovative approaches, we strive for an environment where safety and health are intertwined.​

A Practical Approach to Gun Violence, May 11, 2024

Join the Project Safe Aurora Violence Prevention Coalition at a pivotal community event focused on a cause that touches us all - gun violence prevention. Together, we can make strides towards a safer future.

We're bringing together a diverse mix of organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies, all dedicated to addressing and preventing gun violence. It’s a unique chance for community members to learn, engage, and contribute to making our community safer.

  • Explore a resource fair where local organizations will showcase their services and initiatives to prevent gun violence.
  • Listen to a powerful panel discussion featuring individuals with lived experiences of gun violence, offering invaluable insights into the complexities of this critical issue.
  • Engage directly with experts, advocates, and community members in meaningful conversations that inspire action and change.

This event is for everyone—families, students, professionals, and community leaders. Your presence will add to the collective strength and commitment to address gun violence in our community.
