INTERFAITH CALL -IN DAY ON GUN VIOLENCE: URI

Posted on January 31st, 2013
URI North America is joining with
Cooperation Circles and
interfaith partners across the US for an
Interfaith Call-in Day to Prevent Gun Violence
Monday, February 4
As we celebrate World Interfaith Harmony Week this week from February 1-7 what better opportunity is there to demonstrate national interfaith solidarity than to support this interfaith initiative designed to empower each of us to help cultivate a Culture of Peace in the United States.  Carol Hovis, Executive Director of the Marin Interfaith Council, a URI Cooperation Circle, clearly articulates the important timing of this effort and opportunities for involvement below. Please consider spreading the word through your organizations and networks and make the call yourself on February 4, 2013.
The call-in number, which will be activated on February 4, is 1-877-897-0174. Check for additional resources at http://faithscalling.org.
You can also contact your representatives directly or contact all legislaturesusing mail or email.

I plan to call my members of Congress and ask them to support measures that will reduce gun violence in our country. I hope you will consider not only joining me in this widespread inter-faith effort but promoting it with your friends and colleagues.
Congress needs to hear the moral voices on this issue. To have an impact, our reach must be far. Please help spread the word in your church community.Click here for sample pulpit, bulletin, website, and social media announcements.
