Brady PAC is dedicated to a singular goal: creating a safer America by supporting and investing in candidates who are committed to enacting, improving, and defending Gun Violence Prevention (GVP) policies across the country.


Formed leading up to the 2018 midterm elections, Brady PAC was created to serve as a counterweight to “dark money” Super PACs created by the gun industry lobby. It upholds the policy ideals that have been championed by its sister organization, Brady — one of the nation’s oldest gun violence prevention grassroots advocacy organizations. Brady PAC supports candidates running for local, state, and federal office who support universal background checks, reenacting the assault weapons ban, extreme risk protection orders, and instituting other common-sense gun violence prevention legislation that will make our homes, schools, and communities safer.

A Winning Strategy
That Makes an Impact

Brady PAC takes a comprehensive approach, making strategic investments across all levels of government, up and down the ballot, to create a multiplier effect for positive change. We do not shy away from tough races — aggressively targeting gun industry favorites when warranted.

                                                                                                                                                                                            In the 2022 cycle, Brady PAC raised $3.3 million to support and endorse 224 federal and state candidates, helping elect gun violence survivors and Black, Brown, AAPI, LGBTQ+, and female candidates to office. 


Where We Are Going in 2023 and 2024

In the short years since Brady PAC’s formation, support for our issue continues to swell.

 The electoral landscape has never been more important in the fight to end gun violence. Americans are demanding change at the ballot box, and they want it NOW.

Brady PAC harnesses the power of grassroots supporters to fight for new leadership and push back against the gun lobby’s stranglehold on American politics.

In 2023, we will defend and expand GVP Majorities in Virginia and New Jersey, among a number of other Brady priority states. 

Brady PAC will also focus in 2024 on reestablishing a House GVP Majority, defending our Senate gun safety leaders, and protecting a GVP White House that has taken more federal action date to end America’s gun violence epidemic than any other Administration in recent history.
