For the month of June, the Whitney R. Harris World Law Institute’s Blog, Lex Lata, Lex Ferenda (the law as it is, the law as it should be), will be dedicated to highlighting gun violence prevention work being done across campus, the St. Louis region and around the country. This special blog series is a collaborative effort between their Initiative on Gun Violence & Human Rights and the Gun Violence Initiative.

Read a timeline of Gun Violence Initiative milestones and view highlights of our work from the past five years. Read a student blog on the evolution of the Gun Violence Initiative.

We want to thank everyone who has worked or partnered with the Gun Violence Initiative during the past five years, whether through hands-on participation, by reading our blog posts or donating. We look forward to learning and growing more with you in the future to help eradicate this complex public health issue.
