Transforming Anger and Violence Through the Alternatives to Violence Project

(A full-length AVP basic workshop will be held Sept. 30–Oct. 2 at First Unitarian Church.)

More than 32,000 people die from gun violence every year in America, an average of 88 people per day. This HBO documentary highlights a few of the estimated 8,000 individuals who died from gunfire in spring 2014, drawing exclusively on found media—news accounts, police investigations and social media—to shine a light on little-known stories of tragic loss, bringing the victims to life in their own words and images. The screening will be followed by a discussion about the impact of gun violence on our community, exploring the cost, the loss, and how we might help change the narrative.
Where: Trinity Episcopal Parish, 1108 North Adams Street, Wilmington DE 19801
