Reflecting on 1 October: Using Research to Inform Public Policy and Heal Our Community Nov. 14

Please RSVP to attend "Reflecting on 1 October: Using Research to Inform Public Policy and Heal Our Community," a community forum from Brookings Mountain West, in partnership with UNLV University Libraries, on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. in Greenspun Hall Auditorium on the UNLV Campus.

The event will feature four research presentations, each centered on the Oct. 1 tragedy in Las Vegas. Following the presentations, featured contributors from UNLV and the Brookings Institution will respond to questions posed by the moderator.

On Oct. 1, 2017, Las Vegas joined a growing list of cities in the United States impacted by mass shootings (Blacksburg, Virginia; Newtown, Connecticut; San Bernardino, California; Orlando, Florida; Columbine, Colorado; Fort Hood, Texas; Parkland and Jacksonville, Florida and other locations). In the weeks following the tragedy, the nation and the Las Vegas community, including UNLV, responded with tributes to the victims, short- and long-term memorials to those killed and wounded, and calls to investigate the circumstances that led to this tragic event and to find ways to prevent future atrocities. Following the one-year anniversary of the shooting, researchers from UNLV and the Brookings Institution continue to explore the impact of Oct. 1 through a variety of approaches. From quantitative exploration to qualitative analysis, and from oral histories to social media data collection, the presentations in this community forum explore Las Vegas’s response and offer scholarly research to contribute to better public policy and understanding.
