No organization has a more comprehensive and systematic approach to ending America’s gun violence epidemic. Brady believes that Americans, working together, are more powerful than any problem and we invite those who feel the same way to join us in our work. We know our multi-pronged approach of education, litigation, and legislation will ensure that one day, every American can live free from the fear of being shot. Join us in creating that America.

For more than 40 years, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence has been the leading national voice in the prevention of gun violence with an unrivaled history of success. The Brady Bill, which was signed into law in 1993, remains the single most effective gun violence prevention policy in history, with Brady background checks blocking more than 3 million sales of guns to prohibited purchasers such as domestic abusers, convicted violent criminals, and people with dangerous mental illnesses. In the words of President Bill Clinton, “countless people are alive today” because of the work of Jim and Sarah Brady and the Brady Center.

A diverse workforce and open culture are at the heart of our organization and vital to our mission. All qualified applicants and current employees will receive consideration for employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, disability, veteran status or any other protected characteristic under federal, state or local law. The Brady Campaign & Center to Prevent Gun Violence is committed to advancing the principles of equal employment opportunity.
