A similar blitz was held to challenge gun violence within the St. Louis region. Lessons learned: spend less time explaining the process and more time doing, allocate more time to session (unfortunately restricted to 1-hour based on partner & venue, but will have more time in future), expect 3x more attendees than registered (and match supplies), explicitly state followup plan.
