Gun Violence Prevention Organizing Meeting for Church of the Brethren

>> Add this event to your Google Calendar

The Church of the Brethren Gun Violence Prevention Action Team works to galvanize the Church of the Brethren to be faithful as an effective force for reducing gun violence in our neighborhoods and wherever it occurs.

Are you concerned about the escalating issue of gun violence in our country? Do you long to make a meaningful difference but want to connect with other Brethren in addressing this challenge from a Jesus-centered perspective? Do you want your congregation to speak up and take action on this issue but don’t know how to get started? 

Join us on Saturday May 4 at 7:30pm Eastern (4:30pm Pacific), for our quarterly Church of the Brethren Gun Violence Prevention Organizing Meeting.  See the start time in your time zone (click here).

Main Topic: We will prepare for launching 2024 Wear Orange (June 7-9) in our congregations.  Learn more here. 

The meeting will be led by members of the CoB Gun Violence Prevention Action Team along with staff and interns of On Earth Peace. 

It can be easy to feel despair as we watch the news. Let us build hope together and move forward into ongoing efforts to heal our communities. We need YOU to expand this work.  Whether you or your congregation have already taken steps or are looking to get involved, OEP’s Church of the Brethren Gun Violence Prevention Action Team invites you to our third quarterly organizing meeting specifically for gun violence prevention advocates connected to the Church of the Brethren.

Previous attendance at our quarterly meetings is not required, but we will build on work done in the previous meeting. Slides and resources from our previous meetings can be found here:
