Anti-Gun Violence Tour

African American Women In Cinema is pleased to announce this initiative! This is in response to all of the mass shootings that have been taking place in our country with so many lives lost unnecessarily. Our goal with this tour is to engage into a continual national dialogue to identify executionable ways that communities can come together to speak on the issue of gun violence and what can be done as citizens to address the issue with practical application. The event will feature remarks from gun violence survivors as well as film screenings on the anti-gun violence topic followed by a discussion to address issues with audience and will conclude with a reception. In addition, we will honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as Hon. Robert F. Kennedy who both were a victims of gun violence.

The Anti-Gun violence tour will take place in New York, Florida, Chicago, Maryland and St. Louis from September 22-November 9, 2018.
