Please join us for a screening of the documentary "Making A Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA," a 2016 documentary film by director Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films. Laurie Jones, of Brave New Films will moderate a panel who will include:
Michele Harris-Rosado, RN BSN, Pediatric Trauma Coordinator at the University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital
Pam Montgomery-Bosley, Mother and Gun-Control Activist
Harold Pollack, Helen Ross Professor, University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration and Co-Director of the UChicago Crime Lab
The film tells the stories of tragic shootings through the eyes of survivors and family members. It connects these deaths and injuries directly to the laws the National Rifle Association (NRA) has lobbied for or against on behalf of gun manufacturers. Segments feature Catherine Humikowski, MD, medical director of the pediatric intensive care unit at University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital, who has become a compelling voice on the need to address gun violence as a national public health issue.
