Community Building Initiative, Community Relations Committee and Mecklenburg Ministries will host a community conversation called “Can We Talk About Gun Violence in Charlotte: What are the Facts?  What is the Impact?” at 7p.m. at  Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, 1117 South Blvd.


The panelists include Dr. David Jacobs of Carolinas Medical Center, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Deputy Police Chief Kerr Putney, and Rev. Jason Williams. Participants will be asked questions about addressing gun violence, where it takes place and public response.
