Next week, The Johns Hopkins University will be hosting an important summit to examine policies to reduce gun violence and make recommendations for national discussion. The high rates of gun violence in the United States — exemplified by numerous recent mass shootings in movie theatres, shopping malls, places of worship and neighborhoods, culminating with the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School — have compelled us to come together as soon as possible for this important discussion.

During the summit, national and global experts, advocates, and leaders in gun policy, violence prevention, law enforcement, and mental health will gather to present research, analysis and their direct experience. The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City and Co-chair of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, will present the opening remarks.

We hope, as valued members of the Johns Hopkins community, you will be able to join us or, perhaps more conveniently, to watch the live webcast of this important event.

Title: Summit on Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis
When:
Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 14 and 15
Where: Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 N. Wolfe St., Baltimore, MD 21205, or online at jhsph.edu/events/gun-policy-summit/.

Registration is required to attend the event, due to limited seating capacity. You must use the following link to register: jhsph.edu/events/gun-policy-summit/register.html.

2012 was a great year for your Alumni Association! We eliminated dues, making every Johns Hopkins graduate a member of the Alumni Association, and your response has been incredible. Participation at events and programs has been unprecedented, and we’ve seen your level of giving grow in ways we could have never anticipated. Did you know that, in 2012, your financial support has:

  • Funded the creation and launch of Bridge 5, a mentorship-driven program that links incoming freshmen with alumni of the class five years ahead of them?

  • Funded nearly $50,000 in grants to 48 student groups from all nine divisions of the university? These gifts helped to sponsor activities such as the Hopkins AIDS Alliance, the Johns Hopkins University Mentoring Program, the Dunbar Baldwin Hughes Cabaret, the Disaster Preparedness Project, Black History Month, Engineers without Borders Guatemala Water Project, and the Second Annual Finance 101: Crash Course Series.

  • Helped to increase the number of Alumni Association chapters in North America by 30%?

  • Funded the creation of the affinity group program, which allows alumni to connect, network, share information, and solve common challenges based on shared interests or professional affinity?

Keep the momentum going in 2013 by making a gift to your Alumni Association to support its programs and its future. You can choose an amount that best represents your ability — we suggest $50, $100, $500 or $1,000* – but any size will make a difference. And remember, contributions to the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association are tax-deductible. Thank you for your continued support.
 

*Gifts of $1,000 or more to the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association are placed into the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association Endowment. Gifts of $999.99 or less to the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association are placed into the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association fund for Current Use
