Scholar Spotlight on Kerri Raissian
This week's Scholar Spotlight highlights Kerri Raissian, who organized the “Correlates, Causes, and Solutions for Firearm Violence in America” Conference held at the University of Connecticut last month. The conference, which investigated evidence-based solutions to gun violence in America, addressed themes including social movement organizing, community-level factors, and prevention policies and strategies. Kerri, an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at UConn and one of Connecticut SSN’s chapter leaders, was then invited to participate in a Legislative Forum on Gun Safety and Public Health. Watch a video summarizing the conference here, and also make sure to check out Kerri’s insightful testimony here starting at 1:18:32. Please congratulate Kerri on her excellent work!
