Sunday, September 18th, 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Our sponsors all agree – we are in a crisis in our cities and our country when it comes to guns – and much more must be done. We commend the first steps taken in the “Safer Communities Act” led by Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut and others, or as Sen. Murphy has himself said, “first half-steps.”
Keynote Speaker, The Rev. Bob Moore
Rev. Bob is the longtime Executive Director of the Coalition for Peace Action. One of the projects under CFPA's umbrella is Ceasefire NJ, which has coordinated grassroots support for over 20 new gun violence prevention laws in NJ since 2018, helping NJ be ranked as the state with the second strongest gun safety laws in the country. That correlates with NJ having the third lowest per capita rate of gun violence among US states.
Peaceful Posse is a grassroots program led by Physicians for Social Responsibility in Pennsylvania, and President Tonyehn Verkitus will enlighten us about those efforts. Last but not least, we will hear from Larry Holman, Veterans for Peace, on guns, veterans, and dealing with post-traumatic stress.
