Wesleyan University in Middletown will host a conference on gun-violence prevention at the end of the month.
The Sept. 28 forum will feature keynote remarks from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and a “call to action” by Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, among other speakers.
Also expected to attend are Sen. Richard Blumenthal and U.S. Rep. Jim Himes.
The forum will address the next steps for the gun-control movement as well as providing an overview on the effective use of social media and how activists can impact the 2014 elections.
