Taft presents An Evening with Marcus McAllister of Cure Violence
One person is killed with a gun in Indiana every 10 hours. Worldwide, 40,000 people died last year from gun violence. Three million American children witness an act of gun violence each year. Enough is enough.
Gun violence is a disease. But there is a cure.
ABOUT CURE VIOLENCE
The work of Cure Violence, founded by a former chief of the World Health Organization, is guided by a clear understanding that violence is a public health crisis and has been replicated worldwide in New York City, New Orleans, San Pedro Sula, Honduras; Cape Town, South Africa; and Juarez, Mexico.
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Marcus McAllister, incarcerated for over a decade, is the international trainer for Cure Violence, an organization changing the way cities think about gun violence, and, in the process, curing urban gun-related violence.
