WHAT CAN THE GUN POLICY DEBATE
LEARN FROM CIGARETTES, SEATBELTS,
AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
NOVEMBER 14, 2013
6 – 8 PM
Public Policy Institute of California
Bechtel Conference Center
500 Washington Street at Sansome | San Francisco
Every so often, we read about how public health approaches like motor vehicle safety or tobacco control programs have saved lives across the nation. We hear reports about how the climate change movement has seen success by sharing insightful and persuasive research. Accounts like these raise important questions about how other approaches could be used to keep people safe from gun violence.
We are proud to announce our upcoming forum which includes a diverse panel of experts from motor vehicle safety, tobacco, and climate change who will share how each movement has seen success in the face of big industry, politics, and other policy challenges, and how that can instruct the gun policy debate.
Guests are invited to stay for refreshments and conversation following the panel discussion.
