From neighborhood cafes to the halls of Congress, Americans are weighted with emotion trying to process the public health emergency unfolding as a result of gun violence today. Regardless of individual views on the issue, collectively we weep when having to digest the news of yet another unthinkable shooting—from Columbine, to Sandy Hook, to those numerous acts of violence on city streets that don’t become national headlines. While the policy debates continue across the nation, there is consensus that we must come together to find solutions to this crisis.
Temple University alumni are on the frontlines and understand first-hand the tragic consequences of this senseless bloodshed. Indeed, these distinguished community leaders are working tirelessly to create a healthier city. On behalf of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the Temple University Alumni Association, please join us for a vital conversation highlighting personal stories of the physical, emotional and social toll of gun violence and the actions being instituted to create a stronger community.
