NOT BY MIGHT: CHANNELING THE POWER OF FAITH TO END GUN VIOLENCE
June 12 is the one-year anniversary of the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL
June 17 is the two-year anniversary of the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC
"As people of faith, our role is not merely to lament killing, but to stop it, and to change the culture around it. As Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, we commit to witnessing, educating, and advocating for our shared values and common sense solutions to gun violence." - Faiths United
"Our faith demands that we refuse ever to adjust ourselves to the reality of violence in our streets, in our homes, or in our communities. God's Image, inherent in every human being, is being ravaged by the effects of our numbed acceptance and the inaction of elected leaders. In the name of our fallen sisters and brothers, we will pray and we will march and we will mobilize to combat the scourge of American Gun Violence."
