Beverly Kingston remarks on need for violence prevention infrastructure 25 years post Columbine

This week marks 25 years since the Columbine High School tragedy, where 12 students and one teacher were murdered. Yet, the issue of violence in schools is still rampant. This year alone, 78 people have lost their lives in 88 shootings at K-12 schools in the U.S. And deaths from mass shootings in general have increased 141% over the last decade.

Beverly Kingston, Director of the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence, shares her insights into this tragic anniversary and what must be done to curtail the legacy of Columbine.
