​​​​Our Epidemic of Gun Violence
Sunday, October 27
Rev. Abraham Funchess
Jubilee United Methodist Church, Waterloo

Violence has become a major public health issue in Waterloo-Cedar Falls and the surrounding communities. Based on his years of community activism, Pastor Funchess sees youth violence, sexual violence and systemic violence as products of a xenophobia gripping the hearts and minds of our metro leadership and citizenry. His presentation will describe the magnitude of the socioeconomic and health effects that result from pervasive violence, the risk and the factors that lie behind it, and explore what we can do to address violence through collaborative community agency work.
