... Reducing Gun Violence

In the early ‘90’s Margaret Pageler convened medical and public health leaders along with police and criminal justice professionals to understand and reverse the terrifying trends of child gun deaths.

The resulting programs involved communities of color, educators, advertisers, artists, multiple government agencies, and corporate sponsors. Margaret launched a gun buyback and a trigger-lock campaign. She became a founding board member of MAVIA – Mothers Against Violence in America – and worked closely with Washington Ceasefire and Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Strategic focus led to positive change. Youth gun death rates in Seattle plummeted.
