Hammer Forum

The New Movement to End Gun Violence

Thursday Sep 22, 2016 7:30 PM This is a past program

With Americans demanding increased action in the wake of multiple mass shootings, we explore a growing movement that challenges the gun lobby’s tight grip on Congress. Joshua Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, joins Saul Cornell, Second Amendment specialist and professor of American history at Fordham University, and Tom Diaz, author of The Last Gun: How Changes in the Gun Industry Are Killing Americans and What It Will Take to Stop It. Moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and KPFK 90.7 FM radio host.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, and all Hammer members.
