Join Us at March for Our Lives!

 

In the face of violence, God's resolve for peace in human communities is unshakeable. We feel called as a community to join together to advocate for this peace in many ways, including through gun reform policies.  March for Our Lives is a youth-led movement born out of the tragic Parkland school shooting of 2018. They hold protests against gun violence and advocate for policy and social solutions for gun violence prevention. 

 

LEAMNJ is coordinating buses to Washington D.C. on June 11 for the March on Our Lives. The registration deadline is one week from today (June 3). Join us to advocate for peace!

 

 

Today we remember

those who have died by gun violence,

those who have survived gun violence,

those who mourn deaths of family and friends by gun violence.

Aching with sorrow

We grieve this pain and death that surrounds and fills us.
