On Saturday, April 22, OHSU and Portland State University will convene a community forum entitled “Transforming pain into power: Equipping a community to address the impacts of gun violence.”
The event, which will welcome all individuals and families, is intended to:
• Establish a safe venue that encourages community and institutional collaboration to reduce gun violence, address the social and societal conditions that contribute to it and advance the mission of healing and hope.
• Validate that gun violence is a preventable public health issue that may be managed through positive community engagement and academic research.
The day will include entertainment, knowledgeable key note speakers, small group break-out sessions, as well as on-site resources to advance knowledge, advocacy and healing.
The event is free - please register here http://bit.ly/2nT5j80
Lunch will be provided and child care is available upon request.
