Get involved and become a Groundbreaker!

Groundbreakers are individuals and organizations that want to take part in the conversation about gun safety in Ohio and help spread the word about our campaign.

Groundbreakers know that listening to and talking with Ohioans is the critical first step in formulating ballot language to take to voters for approval.

Join our growing list of Groundbreakers!
