Rector’s Forum, Sunday March 19
Join us in the Forum at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, March 19 to learn more about the Firearms Accountability Counsel Task Force (FACT), a major new national coalition of law firms & gun control advocates aimed at using legal strategies to both prevent and reduce gun violence in America — a bright and welcome ray of hope at any time and especially now, when our nation is on the brink of a future with cause for real concern in many important areas.
From the December 2016 press release:
Today, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, combat veteran and retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, and its partner organization the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, announced a bold new effort with seven top law firms, as well as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brennan Center for Justice, to fight gun violence. This new effort, the Firearms Accountability Counsel Taskforce (FACT), will be devoted to pursuing legal strategies to address America’s dire gun violence crisis and hold the gun industry responsible for unfair business practices that endanger public safety.
On Sunday March 19 we will welcome Mike Doyen and Charlie Lifland to discuss how gun violence can be mitigated without compromising constitutional rights. Mike and Charlie are partners, respectively, in the law firms of Munger, Tolles & Olson and O’Melveny & Myers, which are part of FACT … and we are deeply grateful for their willingness to come and share their wisdom with us.
