The first annual dinner of Americans Against Gun Violence will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Sacramento, California, on the evening of Sunday, October 22, 2017. The event will mark the first full year that we’ve been in operation, and it will provide an opportunity for us to reflect both on the progress that we’ve made up to this point and on the formidable challenges that lie ahead.
We’re honored to have an outstanding keynote speaker, Josh Sugarmann, lined up for the dinner. Josh is the executive director of the Violence Policy Center based in Washington DC. The Violence Policy Center has long been one of our country’s most credible sources of information on the many facets of gun violence in the United States. Josh has worked for more than three decades in the arena of gun violence prevention. He’s written innumerable articles and reports on the subject, and he’s the author of two books, NRA: Money, Firepower & Fear, published in 1992, and Every Handgun is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns, published in 2001.
Details will be posted on this website in the near future regarding the exact time and location of the annual dinner, menu choices, cost, and how you can make reservations both for the dinner itself and for overnight accommodations if you’ll be coming from out of town.
