A Baked Joint Launches “Joint Sessions” on Current Societal Issues
Thursday April 26, 2018
Whether it’s their Thursday movie nights or Friday Jazz Pizza nights, A Baked Joint is always busy “baking” up new ideas that give special meaning to what makes life in Mount Vernon Triangle so uniquely authentic.
It therefore comes as no surprise that in an effort to encourage conversations, relationships and action on important topics that reflect current events with broad social impact, A Baked Joint on recently launched a new series of community forums called “Joint Sessions.” The first forum was held in March on the topic of gun violence prevention.
Leading the conversation were Martina Leinz, President of the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and co-chair of the Virginia Gun Violence Prevention Coalition; and Christian Heyne of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, which seeks to prevent gun violence through data-driven policy development, strategic engagement, and effective advocacy.
A Baked Joint will continue to host more “Joint Sessions” on a diversity of social issues and asks that anyone with topic suggestions for future forums to drop them a line at [email protected].
