Uncomfortable Conversations: Let’s talk about gun violence

August 1 from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
“We are in a state of emergency in America. Gun violence occupies the headlines of every news outlet. It is such a polarizing subject, with pro-gun advocates placed against those who chose gun control. No matter on what side you find yourself, we have to agree we must do something to prevent gun violence in our country. The church especially!”
– Dr. Roger A. Mitchell Jr.

  • – Did you know that in 2020, gun violence resulted in more than 45,000 deaths in the US?
  • – Did you know that every day 321 people are shot in the US?
  • – Did you know there are 120.5 guns for every 100 people in the US?
  • – Did you know Americans are 25x more likely to be killed in a gun homicide than people in other high-income countries?

What is our role as Christians in a country with this culture? How can we seek the flourishing of our neighbors in light of these realties? Our panel of experts and activists will help us understand this important issue and challenge us with ways we can engage to make a difference.
