TRIGGER: THE RIPPLE EFFECT OF GUN VIOLENCE
On Monday, February 11th, at 7:00 PM, Catonsville Presbyterian Church 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.
