The ENOUGH Campaign will gather with members of the community to hold its fourth annual Stamford Vigil of Hope to End Gun Violence honoring the lives lost to the epidemic of gun violence in America on Thursday, Dec. 15, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., in front of the Ferguson Library in Downtown Stamford, 1 Public Library Plaza (at the corner of Bedford and Broad Streets). The ENOUGH Campaign is joined by the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, the Brady Campaign Southwestern CT Chapter, and Connecticut Against Gun Violence.
The Stamford Vigil of Hope is one of more than 230 local vigils and events in 39 states around the nation organized by the Newtown Action Alliance (NAA) and the only alliance vigil being held in Fairfield County. It follows the NAA vigil that will take place in Washington D.C. the night before on Capitol Hill with survivors and families of victims of gun violence. The vigil will be part of a nationwide tribute in partnership with the Newtown Foundation, St Mark’s Episcopal Church, Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, States United to Prevent Gun Violence, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Organizing for Action, Everytown Survivor Network and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
