The first Bay Area screening of Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA will be held at Congregation Emanu-El, 2 Lake St., San Francisco, on Thursday, May 24, at 6:30 p.m.

The U.S. Surgeon General has declared that gun violence is a national health emergency. How can individuals or organizations have an impact on this crisis when guns are part of America’s cultural DNA? How can a voter find out about candidates’ positions on gun legislation during this important election year? How can your organization get involved?

After the viewing of Making a Killing, directed by Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films, five leaders in gun violence prevention will discuss their work and address these questions.
