Join us for a critical conversation with US Senate candidates John Fetterman, Conor Lamb, and Malcolm Kenyatta.

Hear from the candidates in their own words about their plans to fight gun violence

Monday, April 11, 2022
5:45–9:00 p.m. ET

The event, which will take place in Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center, will provide candidates with a meaningful opportunity to directly engage voters and present their plans to address the state’s gun violence epidemic.

Forum candidates include Lt. Governor John Fetterman, US Rep. Conor Lamb, and State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta. Honorary co-chairs in attendance include former Governor Ed Rendell, US Rep. Dwight Evans, and US Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon. US Reps. Madeleine Dean and Chrissy Houlahan will also appear virtually. The forum will be moderated by former congresswoman and Giffords senior advisor Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords will also deliver remarks.

This will be an important discussion on rising rates of gun violence across Pennsylvania—an issue that is certain to shape one of the most-watched elections of the upcoming midterms. In 2020, a heartbreaking 1,752 Pennsylvanians lost their lives to gun violence. Gun violence is spiking across the country, too—45,222 Americans were shot and killed nationwide. This loss of life is preventable. However, no meaningful action has been taken to address this national crisis—and Pennsylvania’s streets, schools, homes, and places of worship continue to be vulnerable to horrific acts of gun violence as our opponents stall progress at the state and federal levels.
