The author examines the state of affairs in gun violence prevention advocacy efforts, using qualitative data collected between November 2000 and February 2001 through semi-structured interviews with 18 leading gun violence prevention advocates that were selected based on their experience organizing grassroots gun violence prevention efforts, their contributions to the field, and geographic region. Seven of the interviewees work primarily at the national level, five at the state level, and six operate locally. Interviewees, while generally comfortable using the word "movement" to describe the state of gun violence prevention in the United States, emphasized that the work is just beginning.
