Overview

The APTR firearm violence prevention toolkit is intended to help educators and students describe the scope of the firearm violence problem from a prevention and population health perspective. Learners should use this document to discuss policy and advocacy options as related to firearm violence at the community, state level and federal levels. Faculty are encouraged to incorporate information from the policy statement and toolkit into their respective curricula and/or education and training initiatives. The Toolkit was developed by APTR members to support the APTR Policy released in 2020: The Role of of the Academic Community and Firearm Violence Prevention.
