Brief Program Description

In the past 20 years, we have seen a frightening increase in school violence involving guns. The possibility of another school shooting such as those in Littleton, CO (1999), Newtown, CT (2012), and most recently, Parkland, FL (2018) terrifies and infuriates all of us. We must fight to protect our children and youth from active shooters, but this crisis deserves careful examination and a thoughtful response. In this provocative session, the presenter explores the facts behind school-shootings during the past two decades and offers specific strategies to “fire-proof” our schools, making future incidents far less likely.
