Newport Presbyterian Church to Host Community Wide Event

Documentary screening and discussion on gun violence

Seattle, like many communities across the nation, has been impacted by gun violence.  The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has produced a documentary titled “Trigger:  The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence” that examines the ripple effect one shooting has on a survivor, a family, a community and a society.  It is told from the perspective of those who have been directly impacted and those who are called daily to respond to this ongoing tragedy.    

Newport Presbyterian Church will host a free community-wide screening of “Trigger” on Wednesday September 24 at 7:00 at 4010 120th Avenue SE, Bellevue.

“It is critically important that the voices of those who experience the devastation of gun violence on a daily basis be heard”  said Christian Heyne, who lost his mother in a shooting in 2005 and now works  for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.  “We need to have a national conversation about gun violence.”

Newport Church is committed to listening to these voices and is using “Trigger” as a platform for engaging this important conversation.  “The response to a nationwide screening campaign has been overwhelming” said director and producer David Barnhart. “When we screen “Trigger”, people seem to connect on a deep level, and it initiates a conversation that asks, “What can we do in our community to prevent gun violence?”
