Through our event, we hope to bring attention to those who have been affected by gun violence as well as raise awareness of legislation and what actions the government has been and is planning to take. During our event, students will be talking about their experiences in the wake of mass shootings and living in a country with such a culture of gun violence, and a survivor will be addressing her own ordeal with gun violence and how it has impacted her life. In the last thirty minutes, a panel of politicians including Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, a representative for Congressman Eric Swalwell, and a representative for Senator Kamala Harris will be responding to questions submitted by the attendees.
