CHICAGO — In response to the epidemic of shootings in Chicago, and the massacre of mostly LGBTQ, mostly Latino individuals at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Chicago-area LGBTQ, Latino and gun violence prevention organizations are coming together for a Town Hall Thursday, Oct. 20 for a forum aimed at education, coalition building and action.

The free program will feature various speakers who are doing the work on anti-gun violence, including through activism, advocacy and electoral politics. LGBTQ activists will address the need to amplify the existing organizational work, and bring new resources to the table for more effective coalitions.

Joy McCormack, founder of Chicago Survivors, an organization that provides crime victims services to families who experience violent loss, is working with Pride Action Tank, Windy City Times, and the Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition to develop the event.

The event is 6-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20 at Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 1650 W. Foster Ave., Chicago, just west of Ashland Avenue. The program will start at 6:30 p.m. Due to location restrictions, no food or beverage will be provided.

Additional information, including speakers, will be posted here: prideactiontank.org/ .
