Florida Matters Preview: School Violence Town Hall

This week on Florida Matters we'll hear highlights from a recent town hall on school violence. The Tampa Bay Association of Black Journalists hosted the event in Tampa's Seminole Heights in response to last month's school shooting in Parkland.

In this preview, we hear some members of the audience voice concerns about school safety to Hillsborough County Schools Superintendent Jeff Eakins, starting with local business owner Natasha Goodley.

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
