What can you and your community do about gun violence?We explored the public health and public safety aspects of the gun violence issue with a balanced panel of experts at these events in May.
|Issues That Matter panel discussions cover a variety of viewpoints with the intention of helping the audience come to their own conclusions about the issue at hand. The format is a moderated informative discussion.
The May 2013 panels covered various public safety and health issues of gun violence, rather than featuring a pro/con debate on gun control.
Audience members at Issues That Matter events have the opportunity to submit questions through a moderator. Free and open to the public. Funded by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
