Executive Director at Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence

Peter Ambler YIMBY



Housing Story

Every day I walk my three-year-old daughter to school. Every day we pass men and women living on benches and sidewalks without shelter. Every day she asks me why they don’t have their own homes. It’s always the saddest part of my day.


Peter Ambler is the executive director and co-founder of Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence, a leading organization in the gun violence prevention movement. His organization has helped advance gun safety in elections, legislatures, and courts across the country and amplified the voices of many Americans calling for change.

Prior to co-founding Giffords, Peter spent many years advising Members of Congress and working in the Obama administration. He worked for then-Representative Gabrielle Giffords in 2011 when she was shot at a Tucson supermarket during a constituent event. He is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
