2020 CAPC Symposium

Published on: 1/20/2020 4:20 PM

Symposium Registration Opens Mid-February!
We, like too many communities in America, have suffered from mass shootings, street gun violence, and gun violence in the home.  How has this affected children, what is the link between childhood trauma and future gun violence, and what we can do to save our kids and our community from gunfire are questions the 2020 Symposium will address from many angles.  We hope you join us for this crucial day of learning, and learning what we can do.
