Gun Violence Prevention Summit
I am reaching out to ask that you please join us for an upcoming Gun Violence Prevention Summit taking place on Saturday, October 22nd from 9 am – 4 pm. The Summit will be held at Christ Church Cathedral in Downtown, located at 318 E 4th Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
This is a free event, and all are welcome to participate. Please feel free to share this invitation with your networks!
The Gun Violence Prevention Summit is co-sponsored by Christ Church Cathedral and Mitch Morris of the Phoenix Program with Cincinnati Works. Programming for the day will include breakout sessions and community discussions regarding safety and gun violence prevention. The breakout sessions will consist of several discussion topics, including an outline of available funding to prevent gun violence, discussion around/examining police data regarding gun violence, a conversation around resources available for victims of gun violence, and a discussion about available mental health support services for those on the front-line combatting gun violence in our community.
The Summit will feature several guest speakers, including Ericka Ford, founder of the New York City Crisis Management System, and Bishop Ennis Tait of Ennis Tait Ministries. The program will also outline resources for those working to combat gun violence in our community, with programmed time dedicated for attendees to network with other attendees, local gun violence prevention advocates, and organizations.
This Summit will be an excellent opportunity to connect with others who share your passion around this work. We hope that you will join us to share your work and experience from your neighborhood and our community.
