Anti Gun Groups and City To Meet At Town Hall
Monday, June 18, 2012, 7:30 – 9:00pm
Great Hall, enter on 8th Avenue. Free with reservation.
Town Hall Seattle staff, members, and board are deeply shaken and disturbed by the events that took place so close to our offices on May 30th. The other shooting the same day, previous incidents in May, and earlier in the year have caused us great concern. Like all of Seattle, we are trying to process the situation and wonder what we as a community can do to address it. As an institution whose purpose is to create a safe place for the expression of ideas, and which has hosted community conversations on topics including education, Occupy Seattle, artist space, the environment, and more, we can think of no more appropriate response than to gather as a community for a constructive conversation about these events which affect us all. A group of city leaders and citizens–including Mayor Mike McGinn, Councilmember Bruce Harrell and others–will discuss issues of public safety, gun control, mental illness, gangs, and how a community not only stays safe, but heals itself after such tragedies. Presented by Town Hall Seattle.
Have to RSVP per this link: Public Safety: A Community Conversation
Thanks to Ray Carter for providing the intel on this. Our gun rights are in jeopardy. Anti-gun groups will be there. Please put the word out to all you know that support the 2nd Amendment. Let's fill the hall and out number them as we did at City hall.
