On Monday November 20, 2017 The Peace Center of Connecticut, Inc. in partnership with The Hispanic Federation and with the sponsorship support of IHeart Media held the first Peace Center Fireside Chat.
This chat focused on gun violence and what we can do as a society to reduce the levels of gun violence in our communities while also creating a culture of tolerance and non violence.
The event was viewed/followed by more than 10,000 people on social media. We also had more than 20 different groups in attendance for the chat.
IHeart Media will be airing the Fireside Chat through their network of stations on IHeart Radio.
We are excited to be planning future conversations as we explore collaborative solutions to violence.
Thank you Renee DiNino of IHeart Radio, Ingrid Alvarez of The Hispanic Federation for working on making this Fireside Chat a success. Thank you Senator Blumenthal and Senator Murphy for your time, insight, work and commitment to this conversation and the goal of making our communities more peaceful.
Iran Nazario, President/CEO
