A Webinar Invitation: Unthinkable. Unfathomable. Unfixable?

By Giving List Staff   |   June 1, 2022

In the wake of horrifying—and horrifyingly common—gun violence tragedies like those in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas, our basic understanding of morality, humanity, and faith can feel shaken. But even in moments of despair, our commitment to action cannot waver. There are numerous effective, evidence-based interventions that can strengthen the capacity of our civic and social institutions to address these crises.

Some of these interventions directly address gun safety. Others address the environment in which violence becomes a viable option to deal with trauma, mental health crises, and abuse. Others still take an equity-specific lens, recognizing that communities of color face disproportionate threats of gun violence. We know what the paths forward are. And our country
has already delayed too long.

Arabella Advisors invites you to join us for a webinar on Thursday, June 2, during which we will hear from on-the-ground advocates about what actions funders, philanthropists, and citizens can take to create a world where our children and our communities can live safe from the trauma of gun violence.

In the meantime, Arabella’s Senior Managing Director Gwen Walden has produced a blog post that shares critical facts to keep top of mind when working to reduce and prevent gun violence, as well as a list of organizations advocating for an end to gun violence in America that funders can support today.
