Exploring the Link Between Guns and Violence, Part 2: Policy Action on the Ground

October 29, 2013

11-12:30 PM PT / 2:00-3:30 PM ET

In this second Web Forum, this discussion is taken a step further and right into the policy arena. Speakers will:

  • Discuss the role of the local elected official in the gun violence debate;
  • Address the challenges and opportunities of coalition building around this topic;
  • Further explore why violence should be viewed as a pandemic, and the problem solving approaches that such framing provides.

Sponsored by The Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation, The California Endowment and the Public Health Institute
