Here’s the inside scoop on the new film!
Changing the Conversation: America’s Gun Violence Epidemic
View the trailer HERE
Gun violence is generally discussed in terms of urban homicides, yet startling statistics tell another story. This film reframes the conversation of America’s gun violence epidemic by shifting the focus from Second Amendment rights to public health prevention. Engage in a radically logical approach to restructuring how we think, speak and act on gun violence through three distinct lenses. Hear from lawmakers, activists, urban musicians united for change and a quiet town, searching for answers after a domestic violence murder-suicide. Wisconsin, serves as a model for every state with urban, suburban, small town and rural populations. Public health experts offer impressive evidence as they present the benefits of reframing this currently polarizing conversation to focus on the broader story. Hope emerges with the awareness that diverse populations experience critical social issues in different ways, and that strategies for prevention will succeed – when driven by data, not ideology.
