Faiths Calling—Join the Interfaith Call-in Day to Support Gun Violence Prevention
Text “FaithsCalling” to 877-877 for a reminder message
December 14th is the one year anniversary of the tragedy in Newtown. Already, faithful advocates have come together several times to tell our lawmakers that we support common sense measures to prevent gun violence in this country, but it is time to unite our voices once again.
We must let Congress know that we will continue to sound the moral drumbeat until there is action. We call on our leaders and say: Enough pain. Enough despair. Enough injustice. Enough inaction. In light of the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy, and in memory of the thousands of Americans killed by gun violence in our country every year, we can and must transform our grief into action.
Add your voice to the chorus of others from diverse backgrounds and traditions that have spoken out to end gun violence.
On December 13th, call your Senators and tell them that we are committed to stopping the rampant gun violence problem plaguing our communities. Tell them that in memory of the children of Sandy Hook and the thousands of Americans killed every year by gun violence, we cannot afford inaction any longer. By participating in the interfaith call-in and by demanding that Congress act to prevent gun violence, members of the faith community can make our collective voice heard.
