who we are
The American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine (AFFIRM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation comprised of healthcare professionals and researchers working together to find lasting solutions to curb the epidemic of firearm violence across the United States. Our funding goes directly to research that will inform protocols for everyone working on the frontlines of healthcare, develop innovative solutions that connect our network to other first responders and stakeholders, and create education and information for healthcare professionals and the public.
In 2018, AFFIRM became one of the fastest growing organizations in the country —signifying the importance of putting needed solutions in place to restore our collective sense of safety and preserve our freedom. We have gratefully received the support of over 40,000 dedicated healthcare professionals nationwide. Our mission is supported by America’s leading medical organizations.
AFFIRM is proud to represent the COLLECTIVE WILL OF MEDICINE in pioneering a solution to this growing epidemic.
