The Coalition Against Gun Violence, Rev.

Photos will be displayed. Tapers will be lit. A BELL will tolled as each name is intoned. Our focus is a re-dedication and a renewed call to action to reduce violence in this season during which we often speak about peace.  Together, each in our individual lives will dedicate ourselves to holding peace in our hearts and extending outward this spirituality with thought and action.
