Whitney/Strong is committed to finding common ground to end gun violence through data-driven, responsible gun ownership solutions.

Who we areWhitney/Strong’s commitment to this fight began just three weeks after our Executive Director and co-founder, Whitney Austin, was shot twelve times in the Cincinnati, Ohio mass shooting in September 2018. Miraculously, she lived and immediately began developing an inclusive approach to combat gun violence.

Our ask:  Our 2021 end-of-year #SeasonOfStrong giving kicks off with Cincinnati Gives, which runs from November 29 at 5 p.m. through December 9 at 5 p.m. Our network across the country is coming together to tap into the power of human connection to strengthen our communities by creating a future free of gun violence. Will you join us? 

Your donation to Whitney/Strong today enables our work with community leaders and elected officials for common ground solutions rooted in education, legislation, and research. 

Since our beginnings in 2018, we'd like to share a few of the Whitney/Strong milestones that make us proud:

  • We've trained over 300 participants in Save A Life since 2019.
  • Over 12,000 gun locks have been distributed across Kentucky and Ohio during 2020/21 thanks to Whitney/Strong partnerships with the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
  • In 2019 we hosted the first hearing on gun safety legislation in Frankfort in over a decade.
  • We secured a bipartisan coalition of Kentucky State Senators to co-sponsor CARR (Crisis Aversion Rights Retention), a gun safety bill, for the 2021 legislative session.
  • Whitney joined Ohio Governor Mike Dewine to advocate for STRONG Ohio legislation, a response to the community call of “Do Something” after the Dayton Oregon District shooting in 2019.

Thank YOU for being part of our
Whitney/Strong community.
Together, we believe we can create a future free from gun violence.
