Join us and filmmaker David Barnhart for this special screening followed by a group discussion of the film. Doors open at 5:30pm. Slack Fellowship Hall, Decatur Presbyterian Church Barnhart Films and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance present "Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence." Watch the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/53705277 "In the United States more than 30,000 people are killed every year by gun violence and more than 100,000 are wounded. The traumatic impact of gun violence can be seen in almost every community. We may hear briefly about the victims of these shootings, but what happens after the media attention moves on and the wider public becomes numb to 'just another shooting'? Drawing upon conversations with ER chaplains and trauma surgeons, police officers and ATF officials, survivors and victims' families, students and school counselors, and others., TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence shares the story of how gun violence impacts individuals and communities and examines the 'ripple effect' that one shooting has on a survivor, a family, a community and society." Childcare available, please RSVP for childcare to email@example.com

Stephanie Bishop, Columbia Seminary graduate and pastor of Smyrna Presbyterian Church in Conyers, will share her personal story of how gun violence affected her life. All are encouraged to attend.
