Gun Violence: Where We Heal

Juneteenth, Middletown CT

Middletown, CT- Protestors march against racial inequality on Juneteenth.

Almost two weeks ago today, two children in Hartford were shot and killed within hours of each other. This week, on the heels of the Derek Chauvin verdict, a sixteen year old black girl was shot and killed by the police in Columbus, Ohio. 

This hour, we discuss what happens after gun violence.

Representative Brandon McGee and Kelvin Lovejoy from Hartford Communities That Care join us.

How should communities support victims and families affected by this trauma?
