Spotlight: Victims’ Voices in the Gun Violence Conversation

Every week brings a new gun incident. With each passing tragedy, the issue touches more lives. While lawmakers are often at the center of the conversation, the voices of the victims of these tragedies are too infrequently given a spotlight. Join us for a conversation with people whose lives have been touched by gun violence as they discuss how their experiences have inspired them to advocate for changes to policy and public consciousness to help eradicate gun violence in its many forms.
