APB's Nicholas Kristof Pens Op-Ed for "New York Times" on How to Reduce Shootings
20 Feb 2018
In his recent op-ed for The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and APB speaker Nicholas Kristof addressed the school shooting in Florida—an event he described as heartbreaking and, even worse, predictable.
A powerful call to action, the article presents statistics-based logic to explain how taking a public safety approach, rather than a traditionally liberal and divisive restrictive approach, can significantly help reduce death by gun violence in the United States.
A sought-after speaker with an unmatched perspective on the events that shape our world, Kristof urges us to take action to lessen the risk of future tragedies: "So let’s not just shed tears for the dead, give somber speeches and lower flags. Let’s get started and save lives. Let’s not accept that school classrooms can turn any moment into war zones."
