Washington, D.C. – This Wednesday, at approximately 2:30 PM EDT, U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) will host various government officials, families impacted by the Parkland shooting, and experts and leaders for a forum on intervention and prevention of school gun violence, in addition to a focus on the use of technology in school security.
The purpose of the forum is to bring people together to understand best practices on school safety, and take back to their agency or community new ideas to implement.  
Rubio pushed for the Stop School Violence Act, which was passed into law last month. He also introduced federal legislation for a “red flag” law, which Florida recently implemented and has already prevented gun violence.
Media interested in attending must RSVP to Media will be allowed to sit-in on the discussion, however, per Senate rules, no recording of any kind is allowed in the room. Rubio will be available for questions following the forum.
