Washington, D.C. — On Saturday, June 22, a broad coalition of students, teachers, and gun-violence prevention groups in Georgia will join with leaders from Campus Progress Action and the Center for American Progress Action Fund to host a summit to stop harmful gun measures from passing in Georgia.
During the 2013 legislative session, S.B. 101—a bill which would have forced guns onto all 31 public colleges and universities in Georgia—nearly became law. This coalition of groups was founded to fight back. Together, they will ensure that the harmful policies that S.B. 101 proposes—like campus carry and arming teachers—are never implemented. The daylong summit will consist of training and strategy sessions on how to reduce gun violence in Georgia and across the country.
