'Gun Violence, Children and Mental Health' Panel Discussion
9:30 AM
Fri, Jun 02
Firearm injuries and deaths in the United States have increased in recent years affecting many children, adolescents, and their families. Over the last five years, more than 1100 Pennsylvanians were shot before they turned 18. Young people face threats of mass school shootings, armed domestic violence at home, and community violence in their neighborhoods. Living daily in fear takes a terrible toll, creating trauma for our youth. As adults, we can do much more to combat this epidemic and stand up for our children's right to grow up in a safer society. On Friday, June 2nd, from 9:30-10:30 AM ET, we will explore "Gun Violence, Children, and Mental Health." Our panelists are State Representative Gina H. Curry, an educator, advocate, and Consultant, Dorothy Johnson-Speight, Ph.D., MHS, LPC, Founder and National Executive Director of Mothers In Charge, Inc. She also advocates for the rights of children and families; Malcolm J. Yates, Director of Government Relations, Public Health Management Corporation, which helps grassroots gun violence prevention providers connect to resources; and Colleen Kennedy, Supermajority's National Organizing Associate. They also successfully advocated for dedicated ARPA funds toward evidence-based gun violence prevention policies and investments in solidarity with other dedicated Upper Darby advocates and Pennsylvania State Trooper Jessica Tobin, a Community Affairs Officer under the Bureau of the Office of Community Engagement. Our host will be Staci Clark, PsyD, Licensed Psychologist, and Director of Prevention & Intervention for The School District of Philadelphia | Office of Student Support Services.
