Gun-control advocates will host town halls Saturday with Georgia legislators.
The “Town Hall for Our Lives” events are the next step taken by some activists and students who organized last month’s March for Our Lives. They are calling for gun-law reform after the February school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
Concerned Students of Georgia will host a town hall, with speakers to be announced, at 6 p.m. Saturday at Rialto Center for the Arts, 80 Forsyth St. NW in Atlanta. A news release about the event described it as a chance to have “face-to-face conversations about gun reform.”
A Georgia 4th District Town Hall for Our Lives with U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Trinity Baptist Church, 301 Honey Creek Road SE in Conyers.
