Lunch and Learn: Gun Control Advocacy & You

UGA School of Law, ATHENS, GA

UGA ACS is proud to host speakers from the Gifford Center and March For Our Lives to come speak to students about the importance of gun control. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there were 692 mass shootings in 2021, and 610 in 2020. And these numbers don’t include the roughly 20,000 other gun homicides, 25,000 gun suicides and 115,000 non-fatal gun injuries—including the 18,000 children shot and killed or wounded every year. Gun violence doesn’t just affect the victims. The trauma also impacts survivors, their families, and their communities, as well as society at large and as future attorneys, we play an important part in advocating for change.
