The National Council of Churches, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and others are sponsoring an Interfaith Call-in Day to ensure that the voices of faithful Americans are heard throughout the halls of Congress on April 9. You can call NC Senators Hagan and Burr at 1-888-897-0174 and urge them to act to prevent gun violence.
As the President of the Christian Conference of Connecticut wrote following the passage of historic legislation there last week, “It was an historic day in Connecticut as the legislative houses debated and passed the most comprehensive gun violence prevention legislation in the country in a totally bi-partisan way. I was so proud of our leadership taking the courageous step to end the partisan posturing and to authentically listen to each other and search for common ground. The final bill represented hundreds of hours of engagement and good listening. I came away awed by their ability to transcend labels and to find collective humanity and accompaniment with each other.”
