ABC says Giffords and retired astronaut Mark Kelly will speak during the interview about a new initiative they’re launching. The network didn’t specify what the initiative would aim to do. A call to a Giffords spokeswoman wasn’t immediately returned Sunday.

The interview by anchor Diane Sawyer will air at 6:30 p.m. EST Tuesday.

Giffords and Kelly met Friday with the families of victims in last month’s shootings that killed 26 people in a Connecticut elementary school.

The couple met earlier in the week with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a longtime gun control advocate.
