Gun Safety and Violence Prevention

June is Gun Violence Protection Month!

See local activities that have been planned for the month.


On May 17, 2018, our newly formed Chapter 2 and 3 Firearm Injury and Gun Violence Prevention Committee met at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.  There were over 30 attendees from both Chapters, including students, parents, residents, and attending physicians.  Jeff Ostreicher from Chapter 2 and Nina Agrawal of Chapter 3 will co-chair this joint endeavor.  Four working groups are planned: Legislative Advocacy, Research and Education, Grassroots, and Media Outreach.  If you would like to help, click Jeff and Nina’s names above to email them.

March For Our Lives 2018

There were about 3000 in attendance at Huntington Town Hall on March 24, 2018.  Chapter President Steven Goldstein’s speech was very well received.
     Former Congressman Steve Israel spoke.  There were invocations from a Priest, Rabbi and Imam, a lot of poetry, and appearances from Jamie Gutenberg’s uncle and Scott Beigel’s sister, family of those killed in Parkland.  They had a voter registration table, and tables to sign up for further actions.  It was very well done.
Here is a video of Dr. Goldstein’s speech:
