You have the power to get dangerous guns off the street and prevent gun violence in your community!

About this Campaign

United Playaz is working with local law enforcement, community partners and city government to hold our fifth community-funded gun buyback where everyone will have the power to remove a gun from our community.

A community-led gun buyback empowers us to cut down on the number of dangerous, illegal, and unwanted guns in our city.

We have removed over 500 guns off of the streets of San Francisco in past events and are hoping to reach a goal of removing 300 guns at this upcoming event. Additional funds support stipends for youth to conduct outreach and stay engaged in positive activities, support families with funeral expenses, and provide speaker fees to community members who share their testimonies with youth.
