Gun Violence Prevention 2019 with Rev. Bence

  • Edina Senior Center 5280 Grandview Road Edina, Minnesota 55436 United States (map)

From the hosts:

The voters spoke in the midterm election and gave control of the Minnesota State House to the DFL. Gun reform was a winning campaign issue, especially in the all-important suburbs. What does this mean for 2019?

Join us on Jan 30 for this FREE event and learn about prospects and strategies for gun reform this year from Rev. Nancy Nord Bence, Executive Director of Protect Minnesota, the only independent, state-based gun violence prevention group in Minnesota. Since 1991 Protect Minnesota has been committed to the public health approach to gun violence, focusing on prevention through evidence-based solutions. Participants will learn about effective messaging and create their own 1-minute messages in support of sensible gun laws to share with their legislators.

Gun violence claims nearly 40,000 lives per year and injures another 80,000. Find out how it can be prevented and how you can be part of the solution at this free educational event.

About the speaker: Rev. Nancy Nord Bence is an ordained Lutheran pastor who felt called to join the gun reform movement in 2016 after providing pastoral care for six families struggling with the aftermath of shooting deaths.
