Gun violence is a major public health crisis throughout the U.S. and must be addressed through a comprehensive public health approach. L.A. Care strongly advocates for more state and federal gun safety legislation to protect lives, as well as for additional funding and efforts to address mental health to ensure people have access to the help they need.
L.A. Care held a Gun Violence Prevention Summit in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health's Office of Violence Prevention on December 9, 2022.
