Join us on January 7th for a screening of Living for 32, with a panel discussion to follow. On April 16th, 2007, 32 students were gunned down in a senseless shooting on the Virginia Tech campus. Colin Goddard was in the room, and survived multiple gun shot wounds. On the 7th, Colin will join the Tucson Chief of Police, Pima County Sheriff, representatives of the Mental Health service provider community, Mayor Rothschild and City Council member Steve Kozachik to discuss local initiatives related to mental health issues, background checks and other related topics. This forum is presented by The Loft Cinema, with support from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Organizing for Action and the Tucson Coalition against Gun Violence.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
