August 12, 2015 - Successes and Challenges in Preventing Gun Violence
In February 2014, Grassroots Change published an interview with Laura Cutilletta, Senior Staff Attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, about the Law Center’s work with grassroots gun violence prevention movements and countering preemption. We interviewed her again for an update on the Law Center’s work and the state of the gun violence prevention movement.
“I think the movement is in a really positive place right now… All this influence and energy in the community is starting to build and make changes. We have been able to kill legislation that we couldn’t have before. We can get legislation through that we couldn’t before… We are succeeding at the state level.” – Laura Cutilletta

Grassroots Change is now offering workshops for grassroots leaders and organizations to develop and strengthen their movements. Our evidence- and practice-based workshops address the three key elements to effective movements: Passion, Strategy, and Capacity. Our facilitated workshops can be customized and implemented in a series of single-day workshops or a single, multi-day retreat. Contact us to learn more about the workshops at

Grassroots Change supports grassroots public health and safety movements. We’re joined together by a shared belief in the power of grassroots movements and a commitment to improving the lives of all Americans – whether that means access to healthy foods, violence prevention, paid sick days, or reconnecting children with nature. Preemption Watch is a project of Grassroots Change.
