Planning Meeting for Gun Control March in Hartford


Want to spend the two-month anniversary of the Newtown shooting marching through Hartford with thousands of others to demand sensible gun legislation in Connecticut? So do I. There’s a planning meeting on Tuesday, and Em Kianka ’13 has deets:

The recent tragedy in Newtown has just made more apparent an issue that has been neglected for far too long. We as a community must take a stand and tell our legislators that enacting gun control legislation now is necessary to ending gun violence in the state of Connecticut. Come stand in solidarity with those working to end gun violence and join the March for Change in Hartford the morning of February 14th. The March for Change is organized by a coalition of activists supporting the enactment of safer gun legislation in CT and will support the efforts of CT Against Gun Violence.

Interested in marching or helping mobilize a coalition of Wesleyan students to attend or volunteer at the march? Come attend this planning meeting on Tuesday, 1/29 at 4:15 in Usdan 110 to talk about our vision for Wesleyan’s involvement in the march. THERE WILL BE SNACKS!

Also, please invite your friends!

Date: Tuesday, January 29 (the actual march is February 14)
Time: 4:15 p.m.
Place: Usdan 110

Dear Commonwealth at BuHo

Dear Commonwealth

Need a break after the first Monday classes of the semester? The band Dear Commonwealth, hailing from the less-vegan-friendly-than-us Oberlin College, will be playing at BuHo for your de-stressing pleasure, opened by Wes band Blackbird & The Cherry Tree. Noah Rush ’14 has specifics for you detail-oriented readers. Note that this event is part of an effort to preserve Buddhist House and other Washington Street houses:

Dear Commonwealth, made up of some of the finest musicians from Oberlin College, the Wesleyan of Ohio that is not Ohio Wesleyan, will be bringing their well-crafted minimalist folk songs to the Buddhist House library, a truly wonderful place that few ever get to view.

Blackbird & The Cherry Tree (Mel Hsu ’13 and Jess Best ’14) will be opening.

This event is the inaugural event of WeSad :( (Wesleyan Students Against Divestment), an organization dedicated to the preservation of Buddhist House and other Washington Street houses as a part of the Wesleyan community.

Come over, enjoy some music, sign our petition (if you like us).

Date: Monday, January 28th.
Time: 9 –11:30pm
Place: Buddhist House library
Cost: $0.00
