Reducing Gun Violence: What Works & How You Can Help
Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30pm
Co-Hosted by the Temple Sinai Gun Violence Prevention Group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and the DC Area Interfaith Gun Violence Prevention Network
With the recent rise in gun homicides and gun violence in Baltimore, DC, Los Angeles, and New York City, what is being done or should be done more effectively to reduce or prevent gun violence, especially in our inner cities?
An expert panel of public officials, police officers, and GVP activists will examine the relative effectiveness of a range of recent public health as well as law enforcement interventions in Baltimore, DC, NYC and other American cities, e.g., gun “violence interruption” programs, “cease fires,” “safe streets,” “cure violence,” rapid response and post-shooting, anti-reprisal hospital visit initiatives, “hot spot” plain clothes police enforcement efforts, gun “buy back” programs, as well as police-family member partnerships with wives, moms and dads to search for and seize illegal guns, workplace and economic development programs, more community policing, federalizing repeat gun offender cases, etc.
The program will also note engagement opportunities for concerned citizens.
