A Conversation: Violence, Guns, and Our Culture
We have over 30,000 firearm deaths per year, of which a third are homicides. Why? Is it easy access to guns? The violence we view as entertainment? Or the attention it receives from media? What do we need to do as a community to decrease violence?
WITH HOST Marcus White, Vice President of Community Partnerships, Greater Milwaukee Foundation AND WITH GUESTS - EDWARD FLYNN, Milwaukee Chief of Police; MALLORY O'BRIEN, PhD, Violent Injury Prevention Researcher and Director, Homicide Review Commission; Clinical Assistant Professor, Marquette University School of Nursing; and HILLARY WYNN, MD, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist for At-Risk Youths and Families.
