Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that in the coming weeks, he will convene different groups of people to discuss how the nation should move forward in addressing how to ensure our children stay safe.  In the aftermath of the shootings at Newtown, Loebsack will bring together law enforcement officers, members of the mental health community, parents, teachers and administrators, as well as the general public to begin the conversation.

“Everyone from the President to the many people from Iowa who have contacted my office have called on the nation’s leaders to have a national conversation about how we can move forward after the senseless violence in Newtown. I think we have to have every option on the table and open for discussion.  That doesn’t mean everything will be implemented, but when you have an open and honest discussion, it is good to have as many points of view as possible. I will use these meetings to hear from people that are directly involved with protecting our children and I look forward to getting ideas and taking them back to Washington with me while we debate how to move forward.”

Details on the formats, as well as the dates and times will be announced in the near future.
