Gun Violence Living Memorial

CCBP books, 2002-2019

Gun Violence: Our National Narrative – A Living Memorial (formerly titled STILL/HEAR) is an interactive, community-driven exhibit that visualizes the scale and impact of gun violence across American history. The work of researching, preparing, and processing the exhibit's materials will be shared through a series of community workshops.
