Resources for Responding to Gun Violence

As a pre-assembly event in May, the Relations and Communications Work Group sponsored the showing of the film,Trigger: The Effects of Gun Violence, which was produced by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Following the film Jean Demmler, a member of the work group, an elder at Capitol Heights Church and a member of the General Assembly’s Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy, led a discussion about the film.
