Community Initiative | RISD Stands Against Gun Violence

To mark and remember the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, RISD will launch a multidisciplinary community response to the rampant gun violence that plagues America. Last November, after the 307th incident of gun violence in the US in 2018 alone, President Somerson and Vice President of Social Equity + Inclusion Matthew Shenoda called for RISD to respond in a unique way that would transcend simple statements of values and sympathy.
