NRA Protest, CA-25 "Town Hall for Our Lives"
Keep Conversation Going on Gun Violence;
Brownley, Lieu Town Halls Coming Soon
On Saturday afternoon, April 7, a pair of simultaneous events exemplified the continuing passion and momentum for ending America's epidemic of gun violence. In Oxnard, Indivisible: Conejo activists joined about 100 protesters demonstrating outside a "Friends of the NRA" fundraiser -- a turnout that vastly outnumbered the attendees at the fundraiser itself.
Meanwhile, in Santa Clarita, a "Town Hall for Our Lives" brought together the Democratic candidates seeking to replace no-show Rep. Steve Knight in California's 25th congressional district. They engaged their potential constituents in an insightful dialogue, offering perspectives like these:
Jess Phoenix: "When I was 17, I was attending (school) down the road from Columbine High School -- and my boyfriend went to Columbine. I want to talk about what gun violence does to a community afterward, when the shooting has stopped, when the news vans have left, and when you are sitting there trying to pick up the pieces of your reality that will never be the same. This is not a matter of if -- it’s a matter of when gun violence will impact each and every one of us."
Katie Hill: "My dad was a police officer, so every single night when I was a kid I laid awake wondering if my dad would make it home. I wasn't worried about someone stabbing him -- I was worried about someone shooting him."
Bryan Caforio: "There are things we can do to save lives starting tomorrow, if we had people in office with the willpower to stand up to the NRA and do that. Too many people are being killed, too many people are being injured, and there are things we can do."
Rep. Julia Brownley has announced her own, student-focused Town Hall for Saturday, April 21, at 10 a.m. in Camarillo. Indivisible: Conejo is excited to be sponsoring Rep. Ted Lieu's Town Hall at Agoura High School on Saturday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m. Please see details of both these events elsewhere in this newsletter.
