On November 13, 2023, Democratic members of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability hosted a roundtable with educators and advocates to seek answers to the national epidemic of shootings. The roundtable took place as this year’s number of school shootings across the nation set a record high.

Four key takeaways from the session were:
-Gun violence includes — but is more than — mass shootings
-Community-based outreach is key
-Solutions must be ongoing
-Holistic efforts needed
