In the past decade, rates of firearm death and injury have increased in the United States, even as violent crime overall has continued to decline. In 2021, 562 Philadelphians lost their lives to homicide, the highest total in at least half a century. This year is on track to meet, or exceed, that grim tally. Gun violence impacts the health of children and young adults, not only through direct personal injury, but also indirectly through the loss of a loved one or a child’s lost sense of safety. Now more than ever, gun violence is an urgent threat to the health and welfare of youth in Philadelphia.

Join the Stoneleigh Foundation for teh second in an action-oriented virtual convening series featuring expert researchers, practitioners, organizers, and advocates who will examine the urgent gun violence epidemic from a wide array of perspectives and explore evidence-based solutions to this crisis.

Changing the Narrative on Gun Violence: The Role of Media will feature a panel discussion about the importance of changing the narrative in gun violence reporting and the role of news media in reducing trauma, educating the public, and elevating solutions.
