CAGV Announces Broad Coalition and Religious Support
Today Connecticut Against Gun Violence, the state-wide organization working since 1993 to reduce gun violence, reiterated its legislative agenda for comprehensive gun violence prevention laws and unveiled a broad coalition of organizations and clergy who support these needed reforms.
Over 300 clergy and more than 45 organizations have joined CAGV’s gun violence prevention coalition. That list continues to grow.
“The scope and diversity of the support—both organizational and religious—for comprehensive gun violence prevention laws should send a strong message to legislators that the time to act is now,” stated CAGV Executive Director, Ron Pinciaro. “All eyes are on the state of Connecticut. We will fail our state and our country if, in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown and the daily incidents of gun violence that plague our cities, elected officials fail to act decisively this session.”
