The American Red Cross Council welcomes you to their virtual presentation on mass violence across America. Most acts of mass violence involve mass shootings. These events are occurring at an alarming rate in the US. Shootings in schools, businesses, houses of worship and other places are statistically rare events, yet cause tremendous upheaval and pain.
