Firearm Deaths in New Mexico

1999-2015


The Face of Gun Violence - More Than Just Numbers


The Face of Gun Violence in New Mexico is a project to document the victims that have been forgotten and give them a voice.


We started this project as a result of several conversations about gun violence and the frustration we had with the lack of progress on the issue. We felt the problem of gun violence and it's solutions needed to include more than just statistics.


There are lives behind the violence - there are consequences that spread beyond a single death that effect us all. We are all victims to some extent, and our hope is these stories can help the public to not only see, but feel what is happening all around us. Then, maybe some meaningful action might be taken.
