This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. All are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, in cooperation with several area faith organizations, will present "No Control," a documentary film that explores how Americans are coping with gun violence at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 19, at The Little Theatre and Café. The film will be preceded by a presentation of the photojournalist work of Joe Quint, who has focused on victims of gun violence. After the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring Quint; Leah Gunn Barrett, NYAGV's executive director; and Greg Soehner, president and CEO of East House. Barrett, who lost a brother to gun violence, was instrumental in getting the SAFE Act passed. Soehner will discuss the facts and myths surrounding mental health and gun violence.
