Over the past four months, VPM News reporters have explored ways Virginians are trying to curb the devastating effects of gun violence in our communities and how survivors and their families are learning to heal.

This edition of the VPM Daily Newscast includes all of the stories from our special series “Another Way: How one Virginia city reckons with gun violence,” hosted by Sara McCloskey.

Stories for this series were reported by VPM News’ Megan Pauly, Patrick Larsen, Whittney Evans and Meg Schiffres.  Digital editing was provided by Dave Cantor and Connor Scribner, who also created data visualizations for the stories. Crixell Matthews oversaw photography and illustrations. The audio stories were edited by reporter and Features Editor Whittney Evans and Sara McCloskey, VPM’s Newscast Editor and Executive Producer of the series. Special thanks to VPM’s News Director, Elliott Robinson and Programming Director Travis Pope for their guidance.

Thank you to our community for sharing your stories, perspectives and the legacies of those lost to gun violence.
