Join us on FEBRUARY 14th at 11am for an hour as we MARCH FOR CHANGE on the North steps of the State Capitol overlooking Bushnell Park.
WHO ARE WE?Open or Close
A coalition of activists supporting the enactment of safer gun legislation in CT; legislation that will be sponsored by CT AGAINST GUN VIOLENCEMARCH FOR CHANGE is the grassroots effort (off-shoot) of CT AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE (CAGV). MARCH FOR CHANGE is the "noise" that will support the legislative efforts of CAGV. This NOISE will force our legislators to listen and take action.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO MAKE NOISE AND MAKE IT LOUD?Open or Close
LIST BUILDING IS KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS CAMPAIGN – we are only as strong as our databaseLISTS of people and organizations who are willing to take action when called upon (I.e. the March on February 14th; going to Hartford at key points in the legislative process; responding to alerts and contacting legislators, etc.)
WHAT ARE WE MARCHING FOR?Open or Close
Enactment of SAFER GUN LAWS in the State of CT. Plain and simple. YES, there will be a specific bill to rally around, but the language is forthcoming. We DO know that the bill will address a ban on HIGH CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES; it will STRENGTHEN OUR ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN; include UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS on ALL sales and transfers. These are referred to as COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS. This is a catch phrase you can use when asked "What are we marching for?"
