Social Justice Café: Gun Violence and Human Rights

This is a past event.

Katie White, MPH intern at the Lister Hill Center for Health Policy, has written on gun violence prevention in Birmingham and will lead our discussion on guns and human rights. 

The Institute for Human Rights' Social Justice Cafe provides a virtual space to engage on topical issues related to human rights and social justice facing our community, our nation, and our world. Anyone is welcome to participate as long as they are respectful to others and do not attempt to dominate the conversation. Specific topics will change week to week.

By registering for the event, you agree to our expectations:

  • We encourage everyone to participate.
  • This is a discussion, not a debate or competition.
  • Embrace “think time” and allow for pauses.
  • Share the time and avoid dominating the discussion.
  • Speak for yourself and your own experiences.
  • Allow others to speak for themselves.
  • Listen generously.
