NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Common Councilwoman Anna Duleep (D-At Large) will be one of the featured speakers Thursday at a gun-control event from 7 to 9 p.m in the Community Room at the New Fairfield Stop and Shop, 25 Route 39.
Duleep, an educator by profession and a staunch gun- control advocate, was invited to speak at the event by the Greater Danbury Chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which is hosting the discussion.
She will focus her speech on creative solutions to convincing state legislators to consider new “common sense” gun safety laws.
“Many people are frustrated when they get that form letter back from their elected representative,” said Duleep in a statement. Her dog, Scrappy, was shot to death in her backyard in 2008, a crime that has not been solved. “They want to know how to further the conversation after that first ambiguous response. I’m happy to trek to New Fairfield and work with activists across the country on our common goal: keeping Connecticut safe.”
In addition to Duleep, other guest speakers include, Marty Isaac, president of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, Aija Gibson, president of the Kent chapter of Million Mom March Chapter, and Lori Fedewa, president of the Warren chapter of Million Mom March.
