Join us on July 29 for a kickoff meetup with On Earth Peace’s gun violence organizing campaign. We want to connect with people in churches and neighborhoods who are concerned about gun violence in our country - who are already taking some action or who want to get involved. Come share your story or your hopes for involvement!
The goal of this initiative is to move our constituency into action to reduce gun violence in the United States. If you have been active, we want to hear your stories so others can learn from your experience; if you are recently fired up we want to offer the community a place to connect. For all of us, we want to build capacity and commitment and see the way forward.
You can expect to:
- hear updates from OEP organizing interns about current action on gun violence
- reflect on your (possible) role in the movement
- connect with others who are concerned or involved
- get some energy and power for the work ahead
- identify immediate next steps in your own action against gun violence
On Earth Peace is a Kingian Nonviolence organization. Our vision is a world in Beloved Community, liberated from oppression, violence, and war. An agency of the Church of the Brethren, a historic peace church, On Earth Peace works with both faith-based individuals and communities and people and groups with no specific faith affiliation who are interested in applying the legacy of nonviolence to solve problems today.
If you have a story about gun violence you’d like to share as part of the organizing meeting, contact [email protected]
OEP’s organizing interns will follow up the July 29 event with one-to-one meetings to continue building with participants.
