Screening and Discussion

Whenever an act of gun violence occurs, communities are fractured at every level. This is what makes TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence such a powerfully moving film. TRIGGER shares the stories of individuals that encounter gun violence in various sectors of our communities: parents, children, and siblings of victims, school teachers, trauma surgeons, law enforcement, legislators, pastors and grief counselors. Although we often think of a bullet as being an end, for those affected, it is only the beginning. 

The documentary frames gun violence as both a disaster and a public health issue. It 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.
