The University of Connecticut’s Center for Advancing Research, Methods, and Scholarship (ARMS) for Gun Injury Prevention and Brown University’s Taubman Center for American Politics and Policy have jointly collaborated to host a four-part webinar series entitled Bearing the Burden.  The series focuses on gun violence in America, its intersection with domestic violence, and its disproportionate impact on women, especially women of color. The impetus for the series is to bring together the community of scholars who are focusing on these crucial issues across multiple academic disciplines.
