Advocates for Prevention of Gun Violence

The Advocates for Prevention of Gun Violence Committee is a grassroots committee of The Unitarian Church in Westport, Connecticut (TUCW), organized to educate and advocate for the prevention of gun violence. The committee welcomes participation from members of TUCW and non-members alike.

We have been active in gun control since members of our congregation were founders, 20 years ago, of Connecticut Against Gun Violence and have consistently advocated for gun safety ever since.  While the Connecticut General Assembly passed legislation on April4, 2013 in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook there is still much more to be done both on the state and federal levels.
