This past session, the Connecticut State Legislature passed a bill establishing the Gun Violence Intervention and Prevention Advisory Committee. This committee was made up of representatives from the gun violence prevention and intervention community such as Hartford Communities That Care (HCTC), hospital groups, advocacy organizations, government agencies and other stakeholders. HCTC Director, Andrew Woods was named Chairman.

The charge of this committee, among other objectives, was to compile and submit a report detailing recommendations that the legislature can adopt to reduce rates of community gun violence. On December 30, 2021, the commission concluded its work and submitted this report. 

The Advisory Committee recommendations detailed online suggest many necessary steps for implementing a statewide commitment to gun violence prevention.
