I am thrilled to share that I will be participating in REFRAME, a unique evening of storytelling to change the conversation about gun violence in America. As a school nurse, family member survivor and blogger, I have a story to tell. If you are in the NYC area, please join me on Wednesday evening March 11, 2020. This will be a memorable evening of storytelling, understanding the ripple effects of gun violence across generations and creating a safe space to explore hope and solutions through meaningful dialogue.
Here are the important details:
AFFIRM (American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine) (https://affirmresearch.org) and AIRWAY (https://airwaystories.org/) are joining forces to host Reframe: Changing the Conversation about Gun Violence in America, a fundraising event the evening of March 11, 2020 in New York City.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Reframe will change the way we talk about gun violence in America. Through storytelling, we — the healthcare community, patients, survivors, and families — will gather to create dialogue and hope. Join us.
The funds we raise will help us to further the AFFIRM mission of funding research, education, and building communities to combat the epidemic of gun violence.
AFFIRM is dedicated to solving gun violence through a public health approach: driving research, developing education, and building community. AIRWAY is a national organization dedicated to promoting community, support, and reflection among healthcare professionals through the art of storytelling.
