End Gun Violence- Join the event June 11
We launched Humanium Metal in the US, because our community constantly asked us to. We know that the current climate on gun violence is heated and feels overwhelming for many. We see Humanium Metal as a tool, that contributes to gun violence prevention in a very tangible way.
We support police stations and community-based organizations to facilitate gun destructions of illegal seized and collected guns. These guns will be completely destroyed and cannot fall into the wrong hands anymore. And we don’t stop there. We transform the metal from the guns into Humanium Metal, a stainless steel used at commercial scale. The income-generated always goes to non-profits working in the affected communities.
We launched Humanium Metal in the US in 2021, in partnership with the Maine Gun Safety Coalition and one single police station, that dared. On June 11th , we have our second destruction with eleven police departments signed up. We believe that this is just the beginning. We want to see people coming together for gun destructions all over the country.
And you can help us! How?
