The Office of Gun Violence Prevention (OGVP) coordinates and administers the Building Blocks DC (BBDC) city-wide gun violence prevention strategy which transforms the government’s approach to justice by supporting vibrant communities where residents are empowered to co-create public safety. OGVP serves as a coordinating office, linking City initiatives, community-based non-profit organizations, and everyday Washingtonians in partnership to address gun violence and prioritize public safety.
