Following the premiere on CNN of a new documentary about gun violence in America, researchers from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy and experts from the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence will host a one-hour panel discussion and Q&A on Wednesday Sept. 22 at 7pm ET focused on evidence-based policies that reduce gun violence.
“The Price of Freedom” explores the gun debate in America and exposes the political and cultural influence of the National Rifle Association. The film will first air on CNN Sunday, September 19 at 9PM ET. Viewers can also access the film on demand starting Monday, September 20 until Wednesday, September 22.
Wednesday’s panel discussion will be moderated by J. Brian Charles, a reporter for The Trace. Panelists include:
- Daniel Webster, ScD, MPH, Director of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy
- Cassandra Crifasi, PhD, MPH, Deputy Director of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy
- Janel Cubbage, LCPC, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Equity for the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence
- Josh Horwitz, JD, Executive Director of the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence
Panelists will discuss various gun violence prevention policies and issues including handgun purchaser licensing, Extreme Risk Protection Order laws, insurrection, and industry regulations -- all through the dual lenses of public health and equity.
We hope you can join us for an important conversation about ways that we can and will reduce gun violence in America.
We hope to see you there!
