The fifth annual Town & Country Philanthropy Summit brought together speakers, panelists, and honorees advocating for issues ranging from gun violence to the future of cancer care.

Perri Peltz, the documentary filmmaker, journalist, and public health advocate, moderated a panel on "Rewriting the History of Violence," featuring Ray Kelly, the former police commissioner of the City of New York, Harold Koplewicz, M.D., the founding president of the Child Mind Institute, Nicole Hockley, the founder and managing director of Sandy Hook Promise, and Cyrus Vance Jr., the District Attorney of New York County.

“We’re obsessed with impact," Hockley said during the panel. "If we’re not saving lives, then we’re not doing a good job.”
