Changing the Conversation

February 1, 2013 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

| Free

Beth Shir Shalom is having a FREE screening of Changing the Conversation at the Temple at 1827 California Ave, Santa Monica on Friday night February 1, 2013  at 7:30 PM following a short Shabbat Celebration at 7:00 PM.

Featuring experts from the field of public health and a shocking back-room interview with a state senator, Changing the Conversation asks – not can we change the status quo on gun violence, but will we?
