GUN VIOLENCE:  A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS
  A TALK BY DR. DAVID HEMENWAY, CO-SPONSORED by TEMPLE ISAIAH AND LWV LEXINGTON

 
Gun violence is a leading cause of premature death in the United States, killing more than 38,000 people per year and injuring many more. From time to time there are important efforts to reduce gun violence through legislation—usually in response to a tragic event.  There is another very important approach that deserves more attention--the growing recognition that gun violence is a public health issue.
 
On Monday, October 28, 2019 at 7:30 PM, Temple Isaiah and the League of Women Voters, Lexington, are co-sponsoring a talk by Dr. David Hemenway based on his highly acclaimed book, Private Guns, Public Health (U Michigan Press 2017).  David Hemenway, Ph.D., is a Professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center. He has written over 240 journal articles and five books including Private Guns, Public Health.
 
Our event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln St, Lexington, MA 02421.  Refreshments will be available from 6:30 PM-7:30 PM, and Dr. Hemenway will speak at 7:30 PM.
 
Dr. Hemenway’s talk will present the case for approaching gun violence as a public health issue-- emphasizing prevention over punishment. He will frame the issue using current data and research, compare the United States to other countries, and propose ways to reduce gun violence.
 
 For more information, contact   LWV Lexington, Convener, Margaret Coppe,  mecoppe@gmail.com,   Temple Isaiah Social Action Committee, Don Detweiler, 781-974-4225.
 
Note:
• You are invited to join us before the event at 6 PM for a brief Annual Meeting of the local League of Women Voters, Lexington.
• Dr. Hemenway will sign books after the talk, if you bring his books with you.  No books will be sold at this event.

This LWV First Friday Forum will take place in the Cary Memorial Library’s Large Meeting Room at 1874 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington.  Coffee will be available at 9:15 AM and the presentation will begin at 9:30 AM.  All League forums are free and open to the public.

Scottish Rite Museum Auditorium, Lexington, MA

$25, $35, $48  (Also Checkout Early Bird Specials before August 1 )

Hamza Akram Qawwal & Brothers, grandsons of the revered Munshi Raziuddin, have been acclaimed for their riveting interpretations of qawwali, the ecstatic improvisational Sufi vocal tradition.

This award-winning ensemble represents the 26th generation of the seven centuries-old Qawwal Bachon ka Gharana of Delhi (India) founded by Saamat bin Ibrahim, the first qawwal of the subcontinent and principal student of mystic Amir Khusrau. The ensemble builds a state of ecstasy through rhythmic handclapping, drumming and powerful vocals (similar to the gospel in its call-response manner) and performs songs that range from 13th-century mystical Persian poems to more recent poems in Punjabi and Urdu.

    Contact: Sarah McDonough   781-862-1703   programs@lexingtonhistory.org
   

Lexington’s Peacock Farm was conceived in 1952 by architects Walter Pierce and Danforth Compton. Pierce lived in the neighborhood until his death in 2013, during which time he refined his modernist principles.* This 1963 family home home in Shaker Glen is one of the 100 homes he designed and retains most of its original character-defining features, while remaining casual, comfortable, and inviting. Join the owners and your friends for a Mid-Century Modern-inspired cocktail party, with music and refreshments of the period, and a silent auction of accessories. Period clothing is also encouraged!

*Please note: If you received a paper invitation, the text describing this home is misleading. This home was built according to plans designed by Walter Pierce for Peacock Farm, but Pierce did not live in it, and it is not located at Peacock Farm. We apologize for any confusion the invitation text may have caused.

Limited to 100 people; $60.

Purchase tickets here.
