Gun Safety CLE

Philadelphia cityscape

Join us on August 15, 2019, for a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) class on gun safety. In Philadelphia, gun violence is an epidemic. Last year, in addition to the 249 Philadelphians killed in shootings, over 1,100 people were shot and survived, leaving many with lifelong disabilities and ongoing medical costs. This violence does not affect everyone in the city equally: nearly 85 percent of shooting victims last year were black, and gun violence is the leading cause of death for black men and youth in Philadelphia between the ages of 15 and 34.

Learn about the issues, the law, and the challenges in trying to address gun violence in Pennsylvania.

  • Mimi McKenzie, Legal Director, Public Interest Law Center
  • Ben Geffen, Staff Attorney, Public Interest Law Center
  • Raynard Washington, Chief Epidemiologist, Philadelphia Department of Public Health
  • Other panelists to be announced

1 Substantive Pennsylvania CLE Credit is available to Pennsylvania attorneys.
