Guns– the Ultimate in Feminine Protection?

February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

#UNLOAD’s Mary Himes and Miggs Burroughs and a guest host, Charlie Grady, will engage in a series of conversations with 5 women who will shed light on the loaded question of whether firearms make women safer. We will talk with a former police captain, a photographer who documents victims of gun violence, a formerly incarcerated woman who has a successful re-entry story, an artist who reinterprets images of women from film noir movies, and an activist who creates jewelry from bullet casings. We’ll explore what drew these women into the world of firearms and get insights about the impact of guns on women.

Tuesday Feb. 16, 7-8pm
Holly Wasilewski and Charlie Grady
Holly Wasilewski is a former beloved New Haven Police Captain with 20 years experience. She is currently the Reentry & Community Outreach Coordinator for the US Attorney’s Office in New Haven. We’ll be joined by FBI Public Affairs specialist and founder/CEO of Hang Time and Her Time, Charlie Grady, for a conversation about Holly’s experience as a female police officer and how to keep communities safe.
