March For Change is a bi-partisan, action-driven grassroots effort started by two Fairfield County area moms, Nancy Lefkowitz and Meg Staunton, following the December 14th shootings in Newtown, CT. The mission of March For Change is the enactment of safer gun legislation in Connecticut. To that end, March for Change has partnered with Connecticut Against Gun Violence (CAGV), a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to reducing gun violence through public education and legislative advocacy in Connecticut since 1993
On February 14, 2013 at 11AM, March For Change will hold a Rally at the Capitol in Hartford as a show of support for common sense gun laws in Connecticut, including a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Madison residents, Francine Larson and Ann Marino, have volunteered to organize a bus/buses from Madison to Hartford on February 14th to attend the Rally. Time is of the essence if Madison is to be represented. If you would like to go by bus, you must RSVP to Francine at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday January 17, 2013.
Approximately 48 persons are required to reserve a bus. The cost is $26.00 per person round trip. Payment will be made online prior to the trip. Information regarding payment will be provided once a bus/buses have been reserved.
March For Change is hoping their movement will spread town by town across Connecticut mobilizing citizens to participate in its mission. They urge all who are interested to: 1. Sign a petition at www.demandaplan.org; 2. Call the White House to demand a change in the gun laws at the national level; 3. Attend the Rally in Hartford on February 14, 2013 to demand Connecticut lawmakers pass comprehensive gun violence prevention legislation; and 4. Register at www.marchforchange.org to keep informed and participate.
Change the Conversation. Change the Culture. Change the Law.
