ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police, the National Park Service, the King Center and other organizations are partnering to host a free screening of a film intended to spark discussions on gun violence.

Organizers say “Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence” will be shown at Ebenezer Baptist Church Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion. Police say the event is part of a series of non-violence programs leading up to Martin Luther King Day.

Police say the panel discussion is expected to feature relatives of gun violence victims, religious leaders and more.

Organizers say the film was produced by The Presbyterian Church and explores the impact that a single shooting can have on a survivor, their family, a community and society.
