Toni Shellen will be speaking on:
Gun Violence: A Public Health and Safety Crisis
Gun Violence has been an issue of public health and safety in our nation for many years, and has worsened during the pandemic. No other developed nation has as many guns, as much gun violence, or gun deaths as the U.S. Brady United Against Gun Violence (formerly known as “The Brady Campaign”) is one of America’s oldest gun violence prevention organizations, and its history of success goes back decades. Learn facts about gun violence, Brady’s programs to reduce gun violence, and what you can do to support sensible change.
