The debate over gun violence takes center stage once again this week in Albany.  Try as they may, politicians, police, clergymen, government officials and community activists have been unable to stem the tide of gun violence in New York's Capital City.  Forum organizer community advocate Marlon Anderson intends to instill a new dialog and a new process to a pathway to deal with Albany's gun culture. "I'm looking to create new partnerships, new commitments and to create the resources that have not been available to address the problem."

Anderson is confident there will be a good turn-out - "I've invited elected officials and organizations who are involved and related to the subject."

The meeting is set to take place 6:30 Wednesday evening  at the Albany Public Library West Hill branch on Henry Johnson Boulevard.
