“We’re gathering just to say that this is a time to both mourn what has taken place and to call for action,” said Jillian Gilchrest of Women’s March Connecticut. “Any time we hear about these incidents they get worse. It is incumbent on all of us to stand up and say enough is enough. There are things we can do and we want to take action now.”
In addition to West Hartford, vigils and rallies were held in Fairfield, Hartford, Newtown and Washington, D.C.
