Spike Lee has earned some of the best reviews of his career for “Chi-Raq,” a hot-blooded comedic satire about gun violence in America, but he’s taking a more serious approach in a new PSA he has directed for Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization fighting for common-sense gun policies.

Bringing together members of the organization with some of the NBA’s biggest All-Stars — from Stephen Curry to Carmelo Anthony — Lee crafts a powerful anti-gun violence message. The interviewees discuss how gun violence has affected their lives in ways both direct and indirect and, most importantly, share what they are doing to change it.
