Strategies to End Gun Violence (Assemblymember Taylor & Assemblymember Richardson)

In order to fully realize the horrors of gun violence, we need to speak to stakeholders, community advocates, clergy, family members who have lost their children and mental health specialists. We will listen to their experiences, learn from their expertise, appreciate the challenges they face in comprehensively understanding this public health crisis that continues to plague our communities. This workshop will focus on strategies toward reducing gun violence and provide a viewing of the short film, Triggering Wounds.
