Peacemaking Webinar: Standing Our Holy Ground - The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence in Urban Contexts
Twenty percent of all firearm homicides in the U.S. occur in the country’s 25 largest cities, even though they contain just over one-tenth of the U.S. population. The Presbyterian Church (USA)-produced documentary Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence examines the ripple effect that one shooting has on a survivor, family, community, and society. The film will screen from 7:30-8:30pm at the Lord Baltimore hotel as part of PC(USA)’S Big Tent Gathering. Following the film, there will be a discussion featuring a panel of Baltimore area residents including clergy, police officers, and activists working to address the gun violence in the city they call home. Panelists include Rev. Cleoda Walker (Baltimore Pastor and clergy to Safe Streets Violence Interrupters), Major Monique Brown (Commander of the Southern District, Baltimore City Police) and Amy Cress (Director of Community Engagement, Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence). The discussion is part of a larger webinar-style series, “Standing Our Holy Ground” hosted by the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, which investigates gun violence and what the faith community can do about it.
