We sent a team of four to the Harvard Radcliffe Institute for Transforming Narratives of Gun Violence: A Cross-city Approach Accelerator Workshop, including Dr. Jessica Beard, Maxayn Gooden, Prof. Yvonne Latty and Jim MacMillan. We met with other organizations addressing harmful gun violence narratives in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis and more places, and we will report on next steps as this consortium takes shape.
