March For Our Lives event coming to Newtown Sunday
A anti-gun violence protest is coming to Newtown on Sunday. Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are leading the March For Our Lives event, which will be held from 2pm to 6pm on the Fairfield Hills campus. The event, sponsored locally by Sandy Hook Promise, will include voter registration opportunities, food trucks, and a speaking program. The Road to Change tour kicked off in June in Chicago. A bus has been touring the country, making 50 stops in 20 states. The advocacy group is calling for the CDC to research gun violence as a public health issue, a ban on high capacity magazines and extreme risk prevention orders.
