Community Violence as a Public Health Crisis by Everytown for Gun Safety

Saturday, 11/19
1:00 pm to 1:45 pm

Generations of activists and anti-racists have seen racism and community violence as a public health crisis. Continued incidences of gun violence perpetuate inequities and further bring to light the nation’s inherent racism. This session explores community violence intervention and uplifts organizations on the ground doing this work. The session will review multiple layers of gun violence as a public health issue that are not emphasized as often in public discourse, focusing particularly on the disproportionate impact on Black and Brown communities. The session also centers frontline advocates and organizations and the impact of community violence on survivors and communities through an anti-racist lens.
