ACS & OutLaw in Conversation with the Giffords Law Center & March for Our Lives

Dineen Hall, Room 442, Syracuse, New York

Ahoy ACS & OutLaw! 🗽🍊🏳️‍🌈

Happy April, Everyone! As we prepare to close another great semester, I wanted to remind everyone about our last official SU ACS event of the semester, which will be this Thursday, April 4th, from 6-7 pm in Room 442 and on Zoom. ACS and OutLaw are partnering together to welcome two great speakers, Leigh Rome from the Giffords Law Center and Brynn Jones from March for Our Lives, to discuss recent 2nd Amendment Supreme Court Rulings and the epidemic of gun violence currently sweeping the nation. 

This will be a catered event, so please try to show up 15-20 minutes early so that you can get some food. There will be an open Q+A as well as a deep discussion of the 2nd Amendment's history, the role of originalism in perpetuating gun violence, and judicial and legal updates about the local Buffalo Tops grocery store shooting, which took the lives of ten people. 

As the last official ACS event of the semester, we would love to have as many people as possible attend and participate in the discussion. So please invite your friends and other interested folks to attend!

Brynn Jones 

March for Our Lives Legal Associate

Brynn Jones is a legal associate with March for Our Lives, where she and her team write amicus briefs in GVP cases across the country that integrate legal arguments with the stories of survivors of gun violence, typically young people, whose experiences highlight the cost of gun violence and the value of reform. She is from Nashville, Tennessee, and is a 4th year at Vanderbilt University studying political science and communication students. After the Covenant shooting last spring, Brynn co-organized a 7,000-student walk-out, a 12-hour occupation after the expulsion of two state legislators the following week, and helped lead a coalition that facilitated three weeks of continuous action for gun regulation, democracy & racial justice in Tennessee.
