Kris Brown      

Gun Violence Prevention Activist & President of The Brady Campaign

Kris Brown is an activist, lawyer, and president of The Brady Campaign. Brown combines a lifelong background in policy, law, and grassroots activism with considerable strategic management expertise to fight to end gun violence in the United States.

A veteran of gun violence prevention work, Ms. Brown started her career on Capitol Hill working for Rep. Jim Moran, advocating for the bill that would eventually become the groundbreaking Brady Act requiring background checks on federally licensed gun sales. At Brady, she has helped shape the conversation on gun violence as a national healthcare crisis, launched the organization’s groundbreaking safe storage campaign to End Family Fire, and formed Brady’s “Team Enough” youth initiative after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, FL.

A noted speaker and media commentator, Ms. Brown was featured in the November 2018 TIME magazine cover article, “Guns in America,” in which she noted that Brady is working to move the discussion of gun violence beyond the polarizing politics in American life.

Ms. Brown has also served as the Chief Legal Officer to a publicly traded company based in Switzerland and as a lawyer practicing at the law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges. She lives in Arlington, VA, with her two teenage daughters.
