Mayor to host meeting on gun violence


Evanston Mayor Steve Hagerty has announced plans for a community forum on gun violence on Thursday.

In a statement, Hagerty said, “With this month’s horrific school shooting in Florida, a police commander shot and killed in Chicago, and an ETHS graduate victimized in our own community, it’s clear that gun violence is a problem that isn’t going away on its own. As a community and as a country, we have to do better.”

He says the meeting, at 7 p.m. in the Parasol Room at the Civic Center, will discuss “ways that we as Evanston residents can make an impact. I’m specifically interested in identifying concrete actions that we as residents can take.”
