Cheyney University Masters of Public Administration Program will host a forum on Wednesday, March 27 entitled “United For Change: Collaborative Solutions to Reduce Gun Violence.” The event will be at 5:30 pm in the Caucus Room of Philadelphia City Hall.
Distinguished public service professional and author Dr. Harvey L. White will be the moderator for the event.
The public is invited for free.
“Our neighborhoods, our populations and our cities are vulnerable daily to violent thoughts and behavior,” said Gedeon M. Mudacumura, Associate Professor of Public Administration, Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences. “Violence is not simply an issue of adequate gun laws, but a matter of culture, conflict and anger in communities. This discussion will address how private organizations, public agencies and individuals can collaborate to address violence. We invite the community to participate in this discussion and share your strategies as valued members of Philadelphia.”
