Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Makes Christmas Day Award to Newtown United

Grassroots Group Formed in Newtown to Fight Gun Violence

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced a Christmas Day Impact cash award to Newtown United, a grassroots citizens group formed by Newtown, Connecticut residents to combat gun violence and fight for tougher state and national gun control legislation. Many of the members of Newtown United had children that attended Sandy Hook Elementary School or knew children and teachers that were killed and injured in the massacre. Every dollar of the Impact Award will go directly to aid Newtown United in their fight to spread their message of peace and healing to the nation.

“The organizers of Newtown United have shown that they are determined to turn the deep pain and anguish of the horrendous tragedy into a teaching moment on the need for the nation to come to grips with deadly gun violence,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “We are proud to stand with them in the spirit of the season and provide financial aid in their quest to accomplish that goal.”

Newton United’s mission, work and accomplishments are spotlighted on the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable website:
