FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Hillary and Bill Clinton will both be heading to Connecticut on Thursday as part of her presidential campaign.

Candidate Hillary Clinton will be holding a gun violence discussion in Hartford, where she will be joined by family members of the victims of the Sandy Hook school shootings. Former President Bill Clinton will appear at a fundraiser in a private home in Westport.

In her Hartford stop, Hillary Clinton will talk about her commitment to enact commonsense gun safety measures as president, her campaign said in a press release.

She has proposed steps to tackle gun violence in communities across the country, including enacting comprehensive background checks, ending immunity protections for irresponsible gun manufacturers and dealers that prevent victims’ families from holding them accountable, and keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals and the severely mentally ill.

Participants will also include family of victims of gun violence in other Connecticut cities.

Members of the public interested in attending this event can RSVP by clicking here .

The event will be at 11:30 a.m. Thursday at the Wilson-Gray YMCA, 444 Albany Ave., Hartford. The doors will open at 9 a.m.

Bill Clinton will be appearing at a fundraiser at a private home, Martha Aasen, former chair of the Westport Democratic Town Committee, told Westport Now . Ticket prices range from $1,000 to $2,700 per person.

The Connecticut primary is April 26. Voters must be a member of a political party to take part.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and California businessman Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente join Clinton on the Democratic ballot in the Nutmeg State.

Billionaire New Yorker Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas are the Republican candidates in Connecticut.
