Maddie’s passion for changing the narrative about gun ownership comes from her research on the relationship between youth mental health, gun access and suicide. Outside of her work with Project Unloaded, she enjoys working in education, advocacy, and community support. Their current projects include expanding LGBTQ+ inclusivity, increasing mental health awareness, and creating educational opportunities in the Bay Area.
