Remembering Dr. King

In our country, more than 40 million people live in poverty, including more than 13.2 million children. With this in mind, we are thankful for #MarianWrightEdelman's reminder about Dr. King's moral clarity and courageous truth-telling and stand in solidarity with communities and advocates that continue the fight, as Dr. King did, to bring people out of poverty and put an end to war, racism, and discrimination. http://www.childrensdefense.org/newsroom/child-watch-columns/child-watch-documents/RememberingDrKing.html

‘Best tool’ to prevent gun violence is rarely used in California

i.e. is proud to have worked with Speak for Safety on revamping their new website, speakforsafety.org, to make sure that more community members and professionals in California are aware of the ‘best tool’ available to them to prevent gun violence, the #GVRO. http://www.sacbee.com/latest-news/article206994229.html

The Parkland, Fla., school shooting has prompted reconsideration of gun control policies like California's gun violence restraining order. Supporters say it is the best tool available to prevent gun violence, but it is rarely used.

Measuring the Toll of the Opioid Epidemic Is Tougher Than It Seems — ProPublica

Using different data sources to understand the nature and severity of the opioid crisis can be difficult, especially when data is limited (see our insights issue on parental substance use and child welfare for an example http://bit.ly/2DKtSZj). One illuminating resource we have in California is the State's opioid surveillance dashboard, check it out here: https://pdop.shinyapps.io/ODdash_v1/

One of our editors set out to create an ambitious list of data sources on the opioid epidemic. Much of what he found was out of date, and some data contradicted other data.

Hope on guns? States are starting to take them away from abusers

Gun owners and gun safety advocates agree that making it harder for domestic abusers to get their hands on guns, and creating better ways to safely intervene in "red flag" situations where someone has a gun, are necessary and important steps to protect potential victims.

Despite the NRA's power, legislators in many states are working to disarm men with domestic violence records
