Massachusetts has the lowest firearm death and disability rate in the continental U.S. This is the result of a set of policies that were implemented by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers, working with local advocates and researchers to develop best practices that can set an example for the country. In partnership with WBUR CitySpace, the Boston University School of Public Health and The Boston Globe, senior correspondent and host Deborah Becker will moderate a discussion exploring how Massachusetts has achieved this and what we can learn from the state.

Panelists include:

  • Charlie Baker, Governor of Massachusetts
  • Robert A. DeLeo, Speaker of the Massachusetts House, Massachusetts House of Representatives
  • Sandro Galea, Dean and Robert A. Knox Professor, Boston University School of Public Health
  • Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General
  • Nestor Ramos, Columnist, The Boston Globe
  • John Rosenthal, Chair, Stop Handgun Violence
  • Vikiana Petit-Homme, Boston Latin Academy, March for Our Lives Student-Activist
  • Sam Zeif, Marjory Stoneman Douglas Parkland High School Alum,
