A Call to Action: Strategies for Coping With and Preventing Gun Violence

Listen & Learn, Public Safety, Take Action, Training and Development

Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States that continues to claim lives daily, and disproportionately in Black, Indigenous, and other Communities of Color (BIPOC)​. On June 10, Points of Light and Morehouse College led a special Listen. Learn. Act to End Racism session that brought together leaders who shared the realities of gun violence across America and explored the needs of communities impacted by these tragedies–especially BIPOC communities. The panelists examined the roles of systemic racism and implicit bias in sparking this epidemic and shared what we can all do to support our communities and take action to end gun violence.
