STAMFORD, Conn. — The ENOUGH Campaign will gather with the community for its fourth annual Stamford Vigil of Hope to End Gun Violence to honor the lives lost to the epidemic of gun violence in America.

The vigil will be Thursday, Dec. 15, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., in front of the Ferguson Library in downtown Stamford at Bedford and Broad streets.

The ENOUGH Campaign is joined in organizing the event by the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, the Brady Campaign Southwestern CT Chapter, and Connecticut Against Gun Violence.

The Stamford Vigil of Hope is one of more than 230 vigils and events held in 39 states that were organized by the Newtown Action Alliance. It is the only alliance vigil planned for Fairfield County.

As members of the community light candles to honor all victims of gun violence, community leaders will talk about the effort in Stamford to reduce gun violence.

Speakers will include Stamford Mayor David Martin; State Rep. William Tong; the Rev. Michael G. Christie, associate pastor at Union Baptist Church; Valarie Schultz-Wilson, president and CEO of the Urban League of Southern Connecticut; and Michael Hyman, director of the Chester Addison Community Center.

The vigil is held in observance of the fourth anniversary of the Sandy Hook School shootings, which left 20 first-graders and six educators dead.

The mission of The ENOUGH Campaign is to protect families and the country and to advocate for more public awareness on the issues of gun violence prevention in America.
