This event will connect residents across the state to engage in discussion about gun violence and how it affects urban, suburban, and rural communities. This urban/suburban “exchange” between residents of Newtown and Hartford will focus on building empathy and a shared sense of grief and healing in two communities that have been deeply impacted by trauma related to gun violence. Inspired by the powerful collaboration that formed between Hartford’s Pastor Sam Saylor and Newtown community members, this exchange will address the gulf between the empathy that is shown for victims of gun violence in urban vs. suburban communities. The dialogue and gathering will be an important step towards expanding the impact and reach of the work of Pastor Sam and Newtown organizers in building alliances between communities of color and suburban and rural white communities. The panel portion of the event will be livestreamed from Wesleyan University via OVEE online audience on Saturday, April 1st, just 2 days before the film's premiere national broadcast on Independent Lens on PBS April 3rd. We will channel questions and comments from online participants to the panel and live audience at Wesleyan. https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/e82frDanielle Orangedanielle_orange+1@itvs.orgfalseMM/DD/YYYY
