| Coalition Against Gun Violence - 22nd Anniversary Fundraiser Celebration
(Always Call to Verify Dates & Times)
YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO ATTEND
CAGV's Anniversary Gala Fundraiser, Sunday, May 7, 2017
We are honored to present Keynote Speaker
Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer
WHO WILL ADDRESS THIS YEAR'S THEME:
RESIST! PROTECT CALIFORNIA’S SMART GUN LAWS
Former California Assemblyman and Los Angeles City Councilman, Mike Feuer wrote ordinances and created new programs to combat gun violence. He authored the innovative microstamping bill that can assist law enforcement in solving crimes and reducing gun violence.
City Attorney Feuer created a Gun Violence Prevention Unit in his office and has worked to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and children. He brought charges against parents who did not properly store firearms that later fell into the hands of their children. Working with the LAPD, he created protocols to assure domestic violence perpetrators do not have weapons.
In a national effort, Feuer joined with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., to co-found and chair Prosecutors Against Gun Violence—an independent, non-partisan coalition devoted to prosecutorial and policy solutions to the public health and safety crisis of gun violence. Recently, Feuer stated, "Keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and those in crisis will save lives," and further that, "Prosecutors, law enforcement and legislators join in supporting these commonsense gun violence prevention measures because they're based on solid evidence. These proposals deserve wide, bipartisan support."
WHEN: May 7th 2:30 to 5:30
