In addition to the local leaders on the Mason stage, David Hogg, a gun violence prevention activist and a student survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, will participate in a virtual question-and-answer session during the event.

Panelists include Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano, Fairfax County Supervisor and Public Safety Committee Chair Rodney Lusk, Fairfax County Police Emergency Substantial Risk Order Coordinator Sgt. Amanda Paris, and President of the Fairfax County NAACP Sean Perryman.

Schar School dean Mark J. Rozell and Safer Country executive director Paul A. Friedman will moderate the discussion. University Professor Faye S. Taxman, founding director of the Schar School’s Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence (ACE!), will introduce the panel.

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required at this site.
