Members of Prosecutors Against Gun Violence (PAGV), a diverse coalition of leading prosecutors from across the country, will hold a summit focusing on mental health issues, their correlation to gun violence, as well as effective and practical solutions.
A media availability to discuss the details of the program will be held with PAGV founders and co-chairs Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., as well as Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. Members of the media will also have access to the afternoon session: Solutions to Prevent Mass Shootings.
In September, Feuer and Vance founded PAGV, which includes 34 prosecutors representing major jurisdictions across the United States. The non-partisan coalition was organized to identify and promote prosecutorial and policy solutions to the national public health and safety crisis of gun violence. The Mental Health and Gun Violence Summit in Miami follows the group’s first gun violence prevention summit in Atlanta in October 2014.
