EBN: Preventing Gun Violence: What We Can Do
The tragedy of increasing gun violence is on nearly everyone's mind these days. What are the causes of this crisis, and what can we do about it? Join us to learn about the six issues involved in gun violence and how this concern intersects with mental health. We will find out what the Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence is doing to stem this problem. We will explore how this crisis affects us personally. Most importantly, we will learn what we can do to address the situation.
Ruth Zakarin is the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence. She spent over 25 years working with youth and adults impacted by domestic and sexual violence. With over 120 member organizations, the Coalition works to address gun violence in all its forms through advocacy, public awareness, coalition building, and community organizing. Ruth has her MSW from the University of Pennsylvania and is also trained as a community organizer. She is particularly interested in creating models of trauma informed advocacy and policy making.
