Nationally, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre galvanized groups to act.
Locally, last week’s near-tragedy at Staples High School sparked quick action too.
WestportMoms — the great parents’ resources organization — is sponsoring “Make It Stop,” a gun violence protection forum. It’s this Tuesday (March 6, 10 a.m., Unitarian Church, 10 Lyons Plains Road).
The event is free, and open to the public. To get a sense of the numbers though, attendees are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, superintendent of schools Colleen Palmer has announced that the Westport school district will host an informational session on school safety and security. It’s set for Wednesday, March 14 (7 p.m., Bedford Middle School auditorium).
An overview will be followed by a question-and-answer session. First responder representatives will be there too.
