Sarasota LWV panel on Newtown - Sandy Hook shootings April 24

The Sarasota LWV is proud to announce a screening and panel discussion of the acclaimed documentary Newtown on April 24 at Fogartyville Community Center. Official selection of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Newtown describes the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history.
The national conversation about gun violence is often laced with partisan politics. Newtown offers the opportunity to broaden the dialogue. A panel and audience discussion on how we can work together as a community to prevent a similar tragedy in Sarasota will follow the film.
  • Doors open at 6:00 pm
  • Panelists include: Dr. Frank Alcock, Associate Professor New College; Patti Thompson, M.A, psychotherapist; Willie Shaw, City of Sarasota Mayor; Michael Andreas, Director of Safety for Sarasota County Schools.
