LWV CVA Firearms Safety Committee

Maggie Hoover and Natalie Testa, Co-Chairs

This recently organized committee is a local adjunct of the LWV of Virginia’s Firearms Safety Task Force.  The goal of the committee is to support sensible firearm legislation by educating our community on the prevalence of gun violence; sponsoring community forums; writing “Letters to the Editor;” lobbying our local and state legislators for firearms safety legislation; and working with other groups such as Moms Demand Action.  We welcome additional members who are interested in this crucial topic. Please contact Natalie Testa by email: natesta@embarqmail.com.
