We can’t achieve racial justice if people aren’t safe in the communities where they live. Email Gov. Lamont and your state legislators asking them to establish a grant-making authority to support community-based violence prevention programs.
Our proposed CT Initiative to Prevent Community Gun Violence would support community-based prevention programs through dependable funding, coordinate technical assistance and ensure accountability to save lives in the urban centers that account for most of Connecticut’s gun homicides (learn more here). More than 20 cities and states around the U.S. have similar programs, with demonstrated success. It’s time for Connecticut to take action!
