Towards a Fair and Just Response to Gun Violence Discussion
Thursday, July 28, 2022, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
The Joyce Foundation invites you to a discussion on the new report Towards a Fair and Just Response to Gun Violence.<br /><br />The epidemic of gun violence continues to take a devastating toll on our communities. In many cities, current levels of gun violence are reaching levels not seen since the 1990s. As policy makers grapple with how best to respond, in late June, the Joyce Foundation issued a new report, Towards a Fair and Just Response to Gun Violence, containing the consensus view on what can be done to address gun violence in a way that is both fair and just. The consensus report represents the views of advocates, prosecutors and defense attorneys, policy experts, researchers, violence intervention practitioners, and members of law enforcement, all experts in their fields who have come together to address some of the hardest questions facing our communities. Speakers at this webinar will discuss the report’s three primary recommendations: expanding community-based interventions, emphasizing supply side solutions to gun violence, and refocusing law enforcement’s response to illegal gun possession.<br /><br />Speakers include: <br />Soledad McGrath, Executive Director of the Neighborhood and Network Initiative (N3) at Northwestern University<br /> <br />Sheriff Jerry Clayton, Washtenaw County, Michigan<br /><br />Nick Suplina, Senior Vice President for Law & Policy at Everytown for Gun Safety
