Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg, 100 Mirror Lake Drive
Understand the Issues: Then VOTE! – GUN SAFETY
Part of a fall voter education series initiated by the church and co-sponsored by LWVSPA. Join LWVSPA gun safety action team lead Sharon Winters and speakers (including representatives of We the Students and Moms Demand Action Against Gun Violence) in learning about the issues, identifying questions to ask candidates and how to take action on this vital issue.


View our Nov. 13 2017 community conversation with St. Petersburg Police Chief Tony Holloway on how we can, as a community, effectively prevent gun violence and improve public safety.

View our Feb. 13 2018 event, “Preventing Gun Violence: A Community Conversation,” at Allendale United Methodist Church.  We had the support of 11 community partners and participation by over 100 community members. Panelists included City Council Chair Lisa Wheeler-Bowman; Amanda Thalji-Raitano, PhD, licensed psychologist; pediatrician Dr. David Berman; and facilitator Ryan Mitchell.  We discussed how we can take individual and collective action locally.  Stay tuned!
