Everytown for Gun Safety is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence.[7] Everytown was created in 2013 when Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America joined forces.[8]

The organization works to "support efforts to educate policy makers, as well the press and the public, about the consequences of gun violence and promote efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals."[1] The group has focused on efforts to require universal background checks on firearms purchases.[9] The organization also produces research and studies on gun violence. Everytown for Gun Safety is largely financed by Michael Bloomberg.[10][11]
