Get Involved with Local Anti-Gun Violence Initiatives

Concerned about gun violence? Want to find out how you can help do something about it? The fall Resource Day on Sat., Sept. 28, at Roxbury Community College will be the formal launch of the diocesan-wide B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign. The Rev. Kathleen Adams-Shepherd, rector of Trinity Church in Newtown, CT, will be there to share her community’s story, as will Urban Improv with some innovative presentations. There also will be workshops for adults and youth on a variety of responses to violence so that everyone will come away inspired and equipped to be peacemakers in their congregations, schools, families and communities. For more info and online registration go to the Diocese website.

Also, Arlington Police and several local church groups will be holding a gun buyback program on Sat., Sept. 28, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. (rain date Sat., Oct. 5) at DPW, 51 Grove St., Arlington. See parish hall board for more info.
