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.
