About Our Two Proposed Panels on Solutions to Gun Violence
PANEL 1: “The Power of Influencers to Prevent Gun Violence”
How can we address gun violence aside from legislative action? Congress’ wheels often grind to a halt and procedural rules are in need of reform. We must look further than our lawmakers to truly address gun violence in all its forms. We'll unite notable leaders and influencers who use their platforms to meaningfully address gun violence. We’ll discuss how they tackle gun violence aside from directly enacting policy change, their impact in saving lives, effective ways to spread a unified message for gun safety, and how their work can act as a blueprint for others.
PANEL 2: “How Planned Parenthood, Brady & You Empower Gen Z”
Social issues matter to Gen Z. They often advocate for fair, safe, and equal treatment of others. In this workshop, Planned Parenthood and Brady will arm educators with tools, language, and information to empower Gen Z to promote social justice. By the end of this workshop, attendees will have the tools they need to help students organize, assemble/develop leaders, create civic engagement, and infrastructure building to motivate, empower, train, and provide resources for learners.
