Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, April 21, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) will host a Student Town Hall on Gun Safety for Ventura County’s high school students to share their perspectives on gun violence.

The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Ventura County Office of Education (5100 Adolfo Road, Camarillo, CA 93012). Students will be required to bring their school ID and a release form signed by their parent/guardian to enter the event. Parents/guardians are also welcome to attend with their children, but the conversation will be focused on the students’ stories and questions. Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at JuliaBrownley.House.gov/Events.

“Our nation has faced far too many tragedies where guns were in the hands of those who shouldn’t have them, and it’s clear that Congress must do more to prevent this senseless gun violence,” said Brownley. “Since the horrific shooting in Parkland, Florida, we have seen an unprecedented wave of student-led activism around gun safety. These courageous young people have awakened our national conscience and are spurring action both locally and nationally. Students are pushing for change, and I want to hear from as many of them as possible.”
