#GunCrisis: Philadelphia Week in Review

TEDx Philadelphia

The team from the Gun Crisis Reporting Project was invited to present this week at TEDxPhiladelphia, a daylong multidisciplinary conference created in the spirit of the TED conference mission of “ideas worth spreading.” We will share video from the talk when available. Photograph for the Gun Crisis Reporting Project by Joseph Kaczmarek.
