Town Hall: Gun Violence & Mass Shootings — #1 of 3 — Community Epidemic
August 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
In the wake of current tragedies, District 8 Councilman Manny Pelaez is coordinating a three-part, city-wide Town Hall series on gun violence. This Town Hall series will create community and solidarity in the wake of both recent and ongoing gun tragedies.
The first Town Hall will take place Wednesday, August 14th and will emphasize the causes of gun violence and chart the intersections it has with community trauma, domestic violence, and mental health. A panel composed of a mental health expert, media and journalism expert Bill Israel, Ph.D., and faith leader Rabbi Mara Nathan will lead the discussion followed by audience engagement.
