As part of an ongoing effort to promote discussion of local issues, State Sen. Art Haywood (District 4) will be hosting a town hall on gun violence at the Woodmere Art Museum on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. After hosting three town halls during the spring, Haywood wanted to make an effort to include Chestnut Hill in the fall.

Haywood’s main goal in holding town halls like this one is to provide residents an opportunity to discuss issues about which they are particularly concerned. Gun violence remains one of the most prevalent concerns in Philadelphia, and is particularly relevant across the country in the weeks following the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Though the timing suggests that the town hall may have been set up in response to the Las Vegas tragedy, Haywood confirmed that the focus, date and time were all established before the shooting occurred.
