In response to the recent spate of shootings in Seattle, Town Hall Seattle has invited several public figures for an evening of conversation about urban violence and public safety 7:30-9 p.m. on Monday.

Participants will include Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn; Police Chief John Diaz; City Councilmember Bruce Harrell; Mariko Lockhart, director of Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative; and Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat among others.
