The Intersection of Firearms & Domestic Violence in the Time of COVID-19
Tuesday, June 2 at 4:30 pm ET
Speakers: Congresswoman Robin Kelly (D-IL); NCJW CEO Sheila Katz, and NCJW Chicago South Cook Section President Sharon Johnson.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many of us in difficult situations, but domestic and sexual violence survivors are particularly vulnerable at this time. With gun stores, gun makers, and shooting ranges deemed essential businesses during the pandemic, sales of firearms and ammunition are at an all-time high. Loopholes in our laws do little to protect survivors and the current strain on our federal background checks system is magnified. Learn about the dangerous intersection between domestic and sexual violence and guns, and what you can do to help those at risk right now.
