Forum Focuses on Initiatives To Reduce Gun Violence In Cincinnati
Thursday, October 3, 2019
Besides the mass shootings that receive the newspaper headlines, gun violence persists on an all too regular basis in cities across the U.S. At the next Community Issues Forum, a panel will discuss the initiatives being taken to reduce gun violence in Cincinnati. The panel includes Mitch Morris, who directs the Phoenix Program for Cincinnati Works, Rukiye Z Abdul-Mutakallim, Director of the Islamic Center of Understanding, Justin A. Weber, Chief Investigator of the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office, Jack Jose of Christ Church Cathedral, and Brian Garry. representing a new anti-gun violence initiative of Neighborhoods United.
Recognizing the tragic results of gun violence in our community, Christ Church Cathedral became invested several years ago in supporting efforts to reduce gun violence and to provide healing to the people that it impacts. The Phoenix Program of Cincinnati Works is one of these initiatives, and Mitch Morris becomes directly involved with many individuals and families caught up in the tragic results of gun violence. A new initiative led by Neighborhoods United seeks to create a city-wide plan for dealing with gun violence. As usual, time will be set aside for questions and comments from the audience.
