Force For Good

Force For Good

Thousands of people are killed every year in our country due to senseless gun violence. Guns are used as a force for harm. We are a “Force For Good”- a force beyond firepower - in that we believe every person has the right to feel safe from gun violence wherever they are.

Driven by our belief that all lives are sacred, and our compassion for others, “Force for Good” desires to promote love over fear. We are committed to promoting gun safety measures, as well as violence reduction and conflict resolution efforts.

Our situation urgently requires a unified effort to shift our current gun culture and to envision a different and hopeful future that protects the safety of each individual. This includes kids, people of color, police officers, teachers, and ALL OF US.

Our Mission

We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe in their community. We believe that we collectively share a responsibility to promote peace, safety, and hope. We pledge to be leaders in the efforts to end gun violence in our Indianapolis community and beyond. 

Our Goals

To bring awareness to current statistics and data about gun violence in order to promote gun violence prevention.

To provide educational efforts through speakers, workshops, book studies, articles, movies, and gun safety programs.

To partner with other local and national organizations focused on changing the gun culture in our society (CURV – Congregations United to Reduce Violence - CURV, Moms Demand Action, Hoosiers Concerned about Gun Violence – HCGV, Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords, Sandy Hook Promise, Brady United, Center for Gun Violence Solutions, and others).

To participate in partner projects such as the “Protect Kids Not Guns” local effort.

To advocate for legislative reforms for common sense gun laws, a ban on assault rifles, criminal prosecution of gun manufacturers, and an end to street violence.

To support the peacemakers who are working on the front lines to reduce street violence.

To offer compassion and care to individuals and families who have lost loved ones to gun violence.

To memorialize those who lives were lost as the result of gun violence.

To advocate for improved funding for mental health programs and suicide prevention efforts.

To invite others to participate in Force for Good.

And above all, to help save lives lost to senseless acts of gun violence.

A “force for good," is action inspired by a genuine concern for others. When we act with compassion, the seeds we plant today can change the course of our shared tomorrow. - The Dalai Lama
