The Future is NOW | End Gun Violence

Over 80% of Americans agree that the time is NOW for gun control reform, yet legislative progress has been unbearably slow. Even national tragedies like the senseless killing of children at Sandy Hook Elementary, was not enough to push meaningful change at the national level.
In this third installment of ‘The Future is NOW’, we’ll learn from the directly impacted what its like to confront gun violence. We’ll also learn from elected officials why change has been slow-coming, and we’ll learn what ALL citizens can do, to be part of the change.
Speakers include:
Mark Barden, Founder, Sandy Hook Promise, and father to Daniel, 7, who died on December 14, 2014 to gunfire
Clai Lasher-Sommers, who was shot by her abusive stepfather at the age of 13
Nza-Ari Khepra, who lost her best friend, Hadiya Pendelton to gun violence in Chicago
