Safe Zone: A discussion on schools and gun violence

  • pin The University of Texas at Austin, GWB (Gordon-White Building) 210 W 24th St, Austin, TX 78705, Austin, Texas 78712 (map)

Join us for an open forum + panel discussion on school safety and gun violence prevention.
Our goal is to engage with school communities (students, parents, teachers) and come away with ways to take our advocacy forward. 
Our conversation will include gun control measures being sought at the national, state and local levels, increased police presence on campuses and the disproportionate impact on students of color, the details of what it would mean to arm educators and what we can do to create shifts in policy going forward. 

The panelists joining us: 
* Chas Moore, Executive Director of Austin Justice Coalition
* Shraddha Joshi, student advocate and March For Our Lives - Round Rock, Texas organizer
* Nicole Golden, Austin Group Leader with the TX Chapter of Moms Demand Action / Moms Demand Action - TX
* Margaret Haule, Founder of Black Lives Matter Austin
* Stephanie Martin, advocate and high school English teacher in RRISD
* Gyl Switzer, Executive Director of Texas Gun Sense
