No More Shootings: A Town Hall on the Crisis of Gun Violence in Connecticut

December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We need to put an end to gun violence and secure our right to safety. That’s why Amnesty International USA and CT Against Gun Violence are hosting a Town Hall Meeting on the crisis of gun violence in Connecticut. Join us in Bridgeport on December 1st and RSVP here!

 

We’ll be hosting a  moderated panel discussion with policy experts and practitioners on how the gun violence epidemic is impacting Connecticut and learn about efforts to end gun violence in our communities. 

 

From Buffalo to Uvalde and Highland Park – Gun violence in our country is an ongoing epidemic that disproportionately impacts Black and Hispanic neighborhoods. The everyday “slow mass shootings” continue unabated in America’s cities, including in Connecticut. It’s time to take action- and you can do so by joining us on December 1st.
