Missed the first planning meeting but wish you could have came? Please come to the second planning meeting for the March for Change that will take place in Hartford on Thursday, February 14th from 11-12:30. The March for Change is a grassroots effort 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. March for Change supports several potential legislative changes, including strengthening our assault weapons ban and banning large capacity ammunition magazines of more than 7 rounds, with no grandfathering.
Please come stand in solidarity and attend this planning meeting! As a community, we must take a stand and tell our legislators that enacting gun control legislation is necessary to ending gun violence in the state of Connecticut. At this meeting, we will be having an informed and grounded discussion of gun control in the U.S., making posters and fliers for the march, and discussing how to get as many people involved as possible.
