Post-Newtown “Town Meeting”


On the Coop High School stage, before a live-television audience, they will begin thrashing out the gun-control, school-safety and mental-health dilemmas posed by the Newtown school massacre. You can join right in—in person or online.

The event takes place Wednesday afternoon at Cooperative Arts & Humanities High School at the corner of College and Crown streets. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Admission is free. The discussion and live WTNH telecast begin at 4 p.m. The event will be live-streamed here and at—along with a live-blog discussion in which viewers/readers can participate.

WTNH and the Independent have organized events like this one before.  One event centered on school reform; click here and here to catch up on that one. A second event previewed a “Don’t Shoot” campaign that has since come to New Haven; click here for more on that event.
