Moderator and Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, will be joined by a number of distinguished panelists to discuss one of the most critical issues facing our nation. CAGV’s co-sponsoring coalition members include: The League of Women Voters, American Association of University Women, Democratic Women, Domestic Violence Solutions, The Glendon Association, La Casa de la Raza, Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee, and the Unitarian Society. The issue of gun violence is important to Santa Barbara as it is to many communities across the country. We will consider the high cost of gun violence not only in terms of lives lost, families shattered and victims injured but also the impact that gun violence has on the community as a whole, i.e., as tax payers in terms of the multiple government agencies involved in handling these critical incidents, such as law enforcement, the court system, public school safety, and hospital and mental health interventions.
