Educators on the Frontlines of the Gun Violence Epidemic

Mar 6, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Gun violence is the leading cause of death for children in America. Our panel of distinguished educators, activists, and union leaders will explore ways we can collectively raise our voices for change. There is not one educator or school staff member in our country who is untouched by gun violence. From direct impact to impending fear, caring for and supporting students dealing with gun violence in their families and communities to navigating traumatic drills, our voices should and do matter. Educators, students, and school staff are on the front lines of this public health crisis.
