ERPO Forum

Join us to learn about the importance of the Extreme Risk Protective Order law and how local community members may use it to keep their loved ones safe! Please RSVP below.

In the 2018 session, MPGV worked with other advocacy organizations and survivors of gun violence to pass the Extreme Risk Protective Order (ERPO), a tool that uses due process and is modeled after the successful Domestic Violence Restraining Order (DVRO) mechanism, to get guns away from individuals in crisis, who are dangerous but may not meet the criteria for involuntary hospitalization.

 

Please join us on Tuesday, October 30, in Kent County at 7 pm to hear from a panel of local law enforcement officials, mental health practitioners, advocates, and researchers to learn more about the importance of this law and how local community members may use it to keep their loved ones safe.

Where: The Unitarian Universalist of the Chester River in Kent County, 914 Gateway Drive, Chestertown, MD
