In 2014 Grandmothers worked tirelessly to support and help pass Initiative 594 requiring universal background checks, collecting more than 30,000 signatures and canvassing precincts to urge support. In 2016 we helped pass Washington State Initiative 1491, Extreme Risk Protection Orders, also known as red flag laws. In 2018, we worked tirelessly for Initiative 1639 for Safe Schools, Safe Communities, achieving almost 70% of the vote for one of the nation’s most comprehensive gun safety measures. During the 2019 Washington Legislative  session, GAGV advocated for and helped pass 10 major gun responsibility bills that make Washington a top gun reform state in the U.S.
