PROJECT SUMMARY

Only a few years ago, there was no central group to counter the powerful gun lobby in Australia. Today, the Australian Gun Safety Alliance provides a credible alternative voice and is now the first port of call for media and policymakers for comment and direction on firearms policy.

Impact Fund: Supporting Our Partners – Australian Gun Safety Alliance
Stephen Bendle, Advocacy and Campaign Advisor at the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, talks with us about establishing a credible alternative voice to the gun lobby in our country through the Australian Gun Safety Alliance.

Without the efforts of the 20 organisations that form the Alliance – and the public conversation they have stimulated – the gun lobby would have unfettered access to influence firearm policy in every jurisdiction in Australia.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

With funding received in 2017, the Alannah and Madeline Foundation successfully established Australia’s first coalition for gun law reform, the Australian Gun Safety Alliance. Funding from the Impact Fund supported recruitment, campaigning, and the development of a new website. Continued funding will enable the Alliance to continue its united effort in holding governments to account for the existing National Firearms Agreement.
