Be part of the 2020 vision to stop gun violence by attending a special forum on this serious issue at Temple Beth Sholom on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. Congressman Tom Suozzi and Gun-Violence Prevention Advocate and Educator Linda Beigel Schulman will address this crucial topic.
Listen to their remarks, learn the facts, and become part of the solution to this ongoing crisis. This event is free and open to the public. The temple’s Social Action Committee is sponsoring the program.
Congressman Tom Suozzi represents the Third Congressional District of New York and is an advocate for common-sense gun-safety reform. He has partnered with Moms Demand Action, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, Everytown, and Giffords, and has organized multiple March for Our Lives rallies, nationally and in New York.
He also supported H.R. 8, the bipartisan Background Checks Act, passed by the House of Representatives in 2019.
Schulman is a gun-violence prevention advocate and educator, and the mother of the late Scott J. Beigel, z”l, who sacrificed his life to save 31 of his students at the Parkland, Fla., school shooting on Feb. 14, 2018.
She was instrumental in the passage of the Red Flag Law in Florida and similar legislation in New York. Her goal is to ensure that no one lives in fear of being shot, whether at home, school, a house of worship, or any place people gather.
Temple Beth Sholom is located at 401 Roslyn Road in Roslyn Heights. The office can be reached at 516-621-2288.
