For the past 30 years, Washington CeaseFire has been the only statewide organization dedicated to reducing gun violence. Citizens who had been directly affected by gun violence formed the organization in 1983. From a small group meeting in private homes, it has grown to an organization with more than 6,000 members across the state. Washington CeaseFire is now one of the most respected gun safety organizations in the nation and continues to work to reduce gun violence in communities throughout Washington State.
