Welcome to Safer Spaces

We are a group of design industry professionals, looking forward to making the spaces we design and use safer by working together to support organizations devoted to curbing gun violence in America.

What we believe:

We’re so proud to be part of a community that creates beautiful, thoughtful, functional and often inspiring spaces. We believe that together with you, we can also help make those spaces safer. So, we’ve created Safer Spaces, an organization for design professionals, brands, manufacturers, vendors, media, design centers, industry groups, showrooms and retailers, to stand together to help create meaningful change.

Mission

To leverage the collective voice, influence and assets of the design community across America to support and amplify the actions of leading gun safety advocacy groups.

Toolbox

To provide a set of clear, actionable steps for those in our community who wish to help create safer spaces.

Promise

To ourselves, our families, our colleagues, friends and neighbors, a promise that we are standing for safer spaces right now and for future generations.
