Newtown: A Conversation on Gun Violence Prevention
Sun, February 12, 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST
A screening followed by a discussion of Newtown the 2016 documentary that chronicles the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history: a shooting that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and 6 educators in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. The Tampa Bay Area audience along with invited community and government leaders will have an opportunity to discuss Gun Violence as a Public Health Issue. The conversation will be moderated by representatives of the League of Women Voters of Florida.
The film weaves together testimonials from parents, teachers, school staff, first responders and clergy members grappling with the tragedy. Their stories document a traumatized community whose resilience and sense of purpose is as powerful as its grief. The film bears witness not only to a community seeking healing in the midst of national media attention, but to all that is left to cope with after the cameras leave.
