Guns permeate the American landscape and gun violence affects the very fabric of our culture.   Every community across the country deals with issues surrounding guns, gun violence, and gun regulation.

The mission of the Guns in the Hands of Artists (GITHOA) Foundation is to promote community based activist art as a means of opening a dialogue around guns, gun ideology, and gun violence in contemporary American society.  The Foundation works with various community, social, arts and governmental agencies including police departments, using art as a catalyst for open ended conversation and discourse about guns and gun violence.
