“Common Crisis…Common Ground” – A Community Conversation on Gun Violence

Congressman Wm. Lacy Clay (D-MO) joined with Better Family Life, Inc. to host a unique and urgent town hall meeting on gun violence on Wednesday, May 30th at 7PM at the Better Family Life Cultural Center located at 5415 Page Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63112. This special live event, entitled, “A Community Conversation on Gun Violence,” will feature powerful testimony from victims of gun violence; ex-offenders who have committed gun crimes; local law enforcement; nonprofit outreach teams who are confronting this epidemic of violence; the leadership of the Clergy Coalition; and Congressman Clay.

“Doing something to stop gun violence begins with us…listening and working at ground level to reduce the flood of guns into our community and to deescalate situations before they explode with tragic consequences,” said Mr. Clay. “The common-sense gun control legislation that I have introduced will help, especially when it is combined with the good and courageous work of Better Family Life, Inc. in our most challenged neighborhoods. This is not just a fight against gun violence; it is a fight to save our community’s future.”

June is National Gun Violence Awareness Month. Congressman Clay’s Town Hall meeting was followed-up by a Wear Orange Day walk on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
