Distinguished Speaker Series Launches in a Spicy New Venue

DSS Fox Individual Talk 1 v3 No Crops - FINALOn Sept. 9, Dr. James Alan Fox will be kicking off the Distinguished Speaker Series in Winter Park at Cocina 214.
Fox will be speaking about “Mass Shootings in America: Myths and Realities.” Specifically, he will talk about how these events are more methodical than people imagine and that increasing our understanding of mass murders can help us start to decrease their violence.
He will be discussing policies that are more likely to be successful in dealing with and preventing mass shootings as well as policies that will likely be ineffective due to faulty reasoning.
