On Thursday, March 22, Councilmember Allen’s Committee on the Judiciary and Public Safety will hold a public hearing on gun violence in the District of Columbia and a number of associated bills on gun safety. Students are particularly invited to testify about school safety and how gun violence has affected them. Council welcomes school groups and student witnesses – please let Laura Marks know if you require help with signing up witnesses, making copies of testimony, or anything else.
Please help get the word out. Full details are below (as well as on CM Allen’s website) and a shareable Facebook event can be found here.
