Jun 21, 2024

As MLC’s Communications and Social Media Manager, Liz Gullett keeps clients informed and up-to-date on the goings on in Lansing and the Capitol.

Through executive order, Governor Whitmer established a task to identify the root causes of gun violence, compile and report relevant data, maximize existing resources, solicit perspectives from diverse stakeholders, and recommend policy.

“Too many Michigan families across our state have lost loved ones to the tragedy of gun violence,” said Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II. “As Michiganders, we can’t accept this as the status quo. Governor Whitmer and I are proud of our work to address the root causes of gun violence through community violence intervention programs, Operation Safe Neighborhoods, and historic legislation. The Michigan Gun Violence Prevention Task Force will help us build on that progress, reduce gun violence, and stand tall for safer communities.”

Executive Order 2024-4:

    • The task force will be housed within the Department of Health and Human Services.
    • Members will reflect a wide range of stakeholders, including state department directors, medical experts, law enforcement professionals, tribal representatives, and more.
