Join us at the Greenwich Country Club on Thursday, May 5 from noon to 2pm.
The CAGV Annual Benefit Luncheon is an important fundraiser for this small but very effective organization.
CAGV (Connecticut Against Gun Violence) is the only statewide gun violence prevention organization that is solely focused on advocating for common-sense gun laws in Connecticut. Thanks to their efforts over more than 20 years, CT has the second strongest gun laws in the nation.
More and more, people are coming to view gun violence as a public health crisis. For the first time in 60 years, as many Americans were killed in 2014 by guns as by automobiles. Two-thirds of gun deaths are by suicide, a number that is growing.
That’s why CAGV has invited Dr. David Hemenway, Director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center, to be our Luncheon keynote speaker. Dr. Hemenway is a leading authority on injury and violence and has written widely on gun violence prevention. We expect a very informative talk from the person who was recognized by the Centers for Disease Control as one of the 20 “most influential injury and violence professionals over the past 20 years.”
We hope to see you at the Luncheon where we’ll celebrate our successes, talk about our agenda and hear from the highly regarded Dr. Hemenway.
P.S. Please don’t forget to mark your calendar for the CAGV Benefit Luncheon on May 5, noon – 2pm!
