will host a showing of the movie TRIGGER:
THE RIPPPLE EFFECT OF GUN VIOLENCE.
In the US, more than 30,000 people are killed every
year by gun violence; many more are wounded. The disaster caused by gun
violence is seen in almost every community. TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of
Gun Violence shares the story of how gun violence impacts individuals and
communities, and examines the "ripple effect" that one shooting has
on an individual, a family, a community and a society. TRIGGER also
addresses the critical issue of gun violence prevention by moving the
conversation away from the polarizing extremes that have long dominated the
debate and lifting up the voice and experiences of those who seek common ground
and a new way forward.
We are pleased to be joined by the film’s producer, David
Barnhart, an award winning producer, director and filmmaker for the
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Barnhart is currently developing long term story
initiatives with survivors of the 2010 Haitian earthquake. The NBC network has
an option to broadcast TRIGGER through May 13, 2013.
