Description

We are excited to announce that on Sunday, August 30, 2020, from 11 am to 2 pm, Women Against Gun Violence (WAGV) will hold its Annual Leadership Awards Brunch at The Taglyan Cultural Center at 1201 N. Vine Street, Los Angeles, 90038.

This year our theme is Trickle Up Activism and highlights honorees that work locally to impact statewide and national change.

For their work on school safety, our honorees include DONNA FINKELSTEIN, WAGV Board Member, Magnet Coordinator (Ret.) and LAUSD Intervention High School Counselor; SCOTT SCHMERELSON, Los Angeles Unified School Board Member - Board District 3; STEVEN ZIPPERMAN, Chief of Police, Los Angeles School Police Department (Ret.) and leader of the LAUSD Office of School Culture, Climate, & Safety.

For their work on bringing attention to the issue of gun violence through popular television, our honorees include KRISTA VERNOFF, Producer and Showrunner and GREY'S ANATOMY.

For their insightful reporting on gun violence in Southern California, we are pleased to honor SPECTRUM NEWS 1.

We will also be celebrating the life and legacy of Frieda Rapoport Caplan, PhD, former WAGV Board Member and activist.

We hope you will join the women and men of our Board of Directors, gun violence survivors, as well as family and friends, as we celebrate the commitment and accomplishments of all our honorees! We hope too, that you will also join us as we advocate for meaningful gun regulations and educate the public and our policymakers about the human, financial and public health consequences of gun violence.
