Overview
The Joyce Foundation, with support from New Venture Fund, recently established the Fund for a Safer Future aimed at collaboratively supporting research and developing strategies to reduce U.S. gun violence. Since the mid-1990s, U.S. government-sponsored research on gun violence has been effectively banned. The lack of empirical evidence on issues ranging from risk factors for gun violence, to the efficacy of proposed federal and state policies, to gun dealer behavior, hampers efforts at reducing gun violence. With this grant, New Venture Fund, with strategic oversight from the Joyce Foundation and other experts, would fund a series of studies aimed at improving the evidence base to help understand the sources of and, eventually, to reduce U.S. gun violence.
