Higher Aim: Guns, Safety, and Healing in the Era of Mass Shootings

Culture & Identity | Fellowships

Virginia Foundation for the Humanities Conference Center

145 Ednam Drive Charlottesville, VA

Join journalist Thomas Kapsidelis, Richmond resident and VFH Fellow, as he presents his research in preparation for a book-length treatment of the unresolved issues in the aftermath of the April 16, 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech.

The book will follow survivors and others deeply affected by the tragedy as they work to shape laws, policies and practices to prevent repeated mass violence. Virginia’s history with gun issues and its proximity to Washington make the state an appropriate place to study the impact of reform movements led by survivors.

This talk is free and open to the public and a casual lunch will be provided.
