End Date: 9/25/2012End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description:
The University of Colorado’s Conference on World Affairs Athenaeum will host a free public talk “Gun Violence in America: We Are Better Than This” with Virginia Tech shooting survivor and Brady Campaign representative Colin Goddard on Tuesday, September 25 at 7 p.m. in the Wolf Law Wittemyer Courtroom on the CU Boulder campus.

While enrolled as an international studies student at Virginia Tech, Goddard was shot four times during the April 2007 massacre. He was one of seven out of a class of seventeen to survive the shooting. He still has three of the four bullets in his body, as well as a titanium rod implanted in his left femur.

Now assistant director of federal legislation at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Goddard educates others about gun violence and weaknesses in U.S. gun laws. He appears frequently in interviews with national media and has been featured in several documentaries, including Living for 32 and HBO’s Gun Fight.

The CWA Athenaeum Series is a student-run offshoot of the Conference on World Affairs. The program brings acclaimed speakers and performers to campus to interact with CU students in classes throughout the academic year.
