#ENOUGH: It’s Time for Congress to Act

#ENOUGH gun violence

Professor Michael Siegel on the overdue need for Congress to restore federal funding for research into gun violence, second in a four-day video and social media campaign to draw attention to the toxic mix of access to guns and the rhetoric of hate. #Enough

In the aftermath of the mass shooting in an Orlando nightclub in June 2016, the Activist Lab and the BU School of Public Health launched a four-day video and social media campaign to draw attention to the epidemic of gun violence in America. The campaign, called #Enough, featured 2-minute videos of BU School of Public Health researchers highlighting several critical issues related to gun violence:

  • Gun violence as a public health issue
  • The need for data-informed approaches to preventing gun violence
  • Lack of legislative action addressing gun violence
  • Gun violence against the LGBTQ community
  • The relationship between household gun ownership and gun violence
