Hanson Bridgett Supports Ending Gun Violence

January 24, 2023 (San Francisco, CA) - This week two mass shootings in California took the lives of our neighbors and shattered the communities of Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay. As with the recent mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde, and Colorado Springs, these latest tragedies were directed at historically marginalized populations in America. The feeling of helplessness that comes from enduring decades of mass shootings with no end in sight can be overwhelming, and the painful realization that our society has accepted these incidents as a fact of life in the United States underscores our collective failure to value each other as humans above all else.

Hanson Bridgett supports organizations fighting to end gun violence, including Giffords and Brady United, with financial contributions and volunteering our time and skills. We are developing new partnerships with local grassroots organizations such as Moms Demand Action and LIVE FREE working in communities across California. 

Donations to organizations working to end gun violence can be made online through these links:
