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.   CT AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE is working behind the scenes to formulate effective legislation, including a BAN ON HIGH CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES.

Wear GREEN to show solidarity with Newtown on the second anniversary of the shootings.

Carry SIGNS. Tell us who you are and where you are from.  Be CREATIVE.

CALL your LEGISLATOR TODAY and tell him/her you want to have a meeting on February 14th in Hartford.  Don't accept NO for an answer. Keep calling.  Go to the home page to find out who that is and how to get in touch.

FOOD TRUCKS for food to purchase and BATHROOMS (those are free) on site.

Dress WARM.  This is a rain or shine situation...  SNOWSTORM date TBA, but off the record it's 2/28.


Oh, and one more thing:  STATE LEGISLATORS?  WE KNOW YOU CAN HEAR US.  WE DEMAND CHANGE IN THE STATE's GUN LAWS.  And we are coming back after 2/14, and calling, and writing until change happens.  Or guess, what?  We are putting our money on the other guy.





1. WHO ARE WE?  WE ARE MARCH FOR CHANGE. 


A coalition of activists supporting the enactment of safer gun legislation in CT; legislation that will be sponsored by CT AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE

MARCH 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.

2. HOW ARE WE GOING TO MAKE NOISE AND MAKE IT LOUD?  


LIST BUILDING IS KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS CAMPAIGN – we are only as strong as our database

LISTS 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.)

3. WHAT ARE WE MARCHING FOR?


Enactment of SAFER GUN LAWS in the State of CT

Plain and simple.  YES, there will be a specific bill to rally around, but that language is forthcoming from CAGV.  In less than two weeks we will know the language of the bill that CAGV Is presenting and standing behind.  At that point, we will know  what the bill is called and what it is demanding of our legislators.  

We DO know that the bill will address a ban on HIGH CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES.  Other items for discussion are referred to as COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS.  This is a catch phrase you can use when asked "What are we marching for?"
