Gun Debate Reframe

At a historic moment, when dramatic policies to prevent gun violence are being proposed and enacted in Albany and Washington, Media Impact Funders convened a critical funder gathering with the leading advocates in New York and nationally. The program, held at co-sponsor Philanthropy New York, focused on key areas of opportunity in advocacy and research for grantmakers to support. In addition, the program showed how documentary film and other public interest media efforts can help to reframe the debate over gun violence.
