Description

Please join us for a discussion with Senator Chris Murphy on his recent book The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy.

The Violence Inside Us

Is America destined to always be a violent nation? This sweeping history by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy explores the origins of our violent impulses, the roots of our obsession with firearms, and the mythologies that prevent us from confronting our national crisis.

Senator Chris Murphy is the junior United States Senator from Connecticut.  He serves on the Foreign Relations Committee, the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and the Appropriations Committee. Prior to the Senate, Murphy served for three terms in the U.S. House representing the state's fifth congressional district. In Congress, Murphy is acknowledged as a leading voice for stronger anti-gun violence measures, a smarter foreign policy, and reform of our nation's mental health system.
