Four different aspects of the Manchester community will be on hand Wednesday evening to talk about gun violence and its effects during a forum at Manchester Community College.
The event, free and open to the public, will consider the issue of gun violence from four different perspectives in the community: religious, political, educational and law enforcement.

Jason Rojas, a Democrat representing the 9th House District, which includes the towns of Manchester and East Hartford; Sr. Linda Pepe, CSJ, Collaborative Center for Justice Hartford; Manchester Police Chief Marc Montminy; and Interim Superintendent of Manchester Public Schools Dr. Richard Kisiel.
