Please join BPEF for a screening of the Emanuel documentary and conversation about gun violence. It seems that every day in America we hear of another act of gun violence. Gun violence has no boundaries. Schools, malls, houses of worship and businesses have all been impacted by this public health crisis. We can’t stand on the sidelines, hoping someone else will solve this issue that impacts us all. Please join the Bridgeport Public Education Fund, Inc. for a forum:

The impacts of gun violence on our society aren’t limited to bullet wounds. Anxiety and trauma associated with gun violence impact students’ grades, attendance, test scores, graduation rates, physical health and overall well-being. Let’s interrupt this growing threat to us all. Join the conversation to learn how we can work collectively to reduce gun violence!
