Tell HHS Secretary: Advance gun violence research

Gun violence is a leading killer of children in our country – and for the first time in more than two decades, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is poised to restart its research on this public health issue. The latest federal budget opened the door for this work to resume; now it needs the support of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

Will you send your message asking Secretary Azar to direct CDC scientists to restart gun violence research as soon as possible?
