Gun Control: Grassroots Strategies for Turning Rage into Results
There are no simple ways to end mass shootings, but there are grassroots strategies for turning rage into results that will ultimately save lives.
Join Caroline Magee, attorney, priest and advocate for common-sense reform of laws and policies relating to guns, in person at Decatur CoWorks or live on our Facebook page. She’ll discuss her work with politicians, as a private citizen and as a member of “Outcry: Interfaith Voices Against Gun Violence” to influence smarter gun-related legislation.
Caroline also will outline a strategy that every concerned citizen can implement to pressure community leaders to commit to finding ways to balance rights and life, instead of repeatedly sacrificing the latter in the name of the former.
Caroline said, “If it were easy, the work would be done by now, but ‘challenging’ is not the same as ‘impossible!'”
NOTE: Feel free to bring your lunch if you’re attending in person.
