Education for Action: Firearm/Domestic Violence Summit

Host Organization: Women Against Gun Violence


The Firearm/Domestic Violence Summit brings together experts in the field of domestic violence with experts from the gun violence prevention movement to share information and discuss programs and methods to prevent and protect individuals and families from domestic violence and its devastating effects.

PRESENTING OUR KEYNOTE ADDRESS IS LOS ANGELES CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER, one of California's leading lawyers and lawmakers. As L.A.'s chief lawyer and prosecutor since July, 2013, he has brought an innovative, problem-solving focus to the office that combines tough and effective prosecution with initiatives to improve public safety and the quality of life throughout the city.

A national leader in preventing gun violence, Feuer created the City Attorney's Gun Violence Prevention Unit and has worked aggressively to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and children. He has brought charges against parents who did not properly store firearms which later fell into the hands of their children. Working with the LAPD, he created protocols to assure domestic violence perpetrators do not have weapons. In a groundbreaking national effort, Feuer joined with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. to co-found and chair Prosecutors Against Gun Violence -- an independent, non-partisan coalition devoted to prosecutorial and policy solutions to the public health and safety crisis of gun violence.
