Can reporters prevent gun violence? This Philadelphia journalist wants to find out

Next month, on Nov. 8, the Better Gun Reporting Violence Summit at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia will bring together “experts in public health, gun policy, and violence reduction; community members who have experienced gun violence; and journalists from around the country” to “achieve the same goal: interrupt the cycle of community violence, reduce shootings and save lives.”
