Town Hall Seattle says
On April 20, 1999, two teenage boys walked into their Colorado high school armed with multiple firearms, leaving 13 dead and 24 injured. This unprecedented school massacre left many Americans galvanized and determined to prevent further tragedies by enacting stronger gun laws. Yet today, almost 20 years later, the frequency of these incidents have only increased. In SHOT, author/photographer Kathy Shorr presents portraits of 101 survivors, aged 8 to 80, from all races and many ethnicities. Most were photographed in the location where they were shot. Join a panel discussion with Shorr and local survivors and experts.

Panelists include:
Kathy Shorr, photographer and author of SHOT
Courtney Weaver, blues singer and survivor of gun violence
Liz Hjelmseth, host of the podcast The Hamster Wheel and survivor of gun violence
Ralph Fascitelli. Washington Ceasefire
Colleen McIngalls, Victim Support Services
