CAN WE TALK about Gun Violence in Charlotte:
What are the Facts? What is the Impact?
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church
Public Health: Dr. David Jacobs
CMPD/Courts: Deputy Chief Kerr Putney
Clergy: Rev. Jason Williams
The problem of gun violence impacts everyone physically, spiritually and economically. How we as a community address safety and the issue of gun violence depends on how we understand what causes us to feel unsafe. Is it too many guns or not enough guns? Is it who the perpetrators are and where it is happening? Is it who the victims are and where they live? Is it a failure to take adequate steps to protect ourselves? Are we apathetic because we don’t believe it impacts us or is it we just don’t know what to do?
Join us for this “Can We Talk about Gun Violence in Charlotte” dialogue as we address tough issues with respect across our different perspectives and learn what difference we can take.
