10.23.19 Gun Violence Prevention Event

Gun Violence Prevention Event

Please join AJC as we partner with Washington National Cathedral for a discussion about gun violence and houses of worship. 

It’s no longer if someone we know will be directly impacted by an act of gun violence, but when.

Urban violence, domestic events, suicides, mass murder and accidents cause more than 100 gun deaths every day. Houses of worship must prepare for the potential of violence within their walls, respond compassionately to trauma in our communities and reclaim our communities as places of safety and sanctuary.

Prepare, Respond, and Reclaim: Gun Violence and Houses of Worship

Washington National Cathedral

Pierre Thomas, Chief Justice Correspondent for ABC News, leads a multi‑faceted discussion with survivors and supporters. Free and open to the public. Join us to be challenged, inspired and moved to act.
