UI student group hosting town hall meeting on gun violence Thursday

CHAMPAIGN — A University of Illinois organization is planning a town hall meeting Thursday night to discuss gun violence.

UIUC Students Against Gun Violence will host the meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Champaign Public Library, 200 W. Green St.

This is one of a series of town halls being scheduled in every U.S. House district across the country in the wake of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting.

Both Republican U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis and Democratic challenger Betsy Dirksen Londrigan have been invited to attend.
