Sensible Gun Culture: Ways You Can Help

Bishop Perry Invites Your Participation in Creating a Sensible Gun Culture

Gun violence has been a daily tragedy in so many Michigan communities for far too long. The recent school shooting in Oxford highlights the urgency of this issue. More than 1000 Michiganders are killed every year by firearms and firearms are the number 1 cause of death of children in our state. African-American Michiganders are 21 times more likely to be killed by a gun than their white neighbors.

It’s time to take action to create a culture in which we feel safe in our neighborhoods and confident when we send our children to school that they too are safe.

Please join an exploratory call to discuss the idea of a gun safety ballot initiative, January 14th, at 12:00 PM.

Episcopalians of Michigan Committed to Social Justice Seek Signatures

This organization of clergy and lay leaders in our Michigan dioceses invite everyone to join their efforts seeking common-sense gun safety measures to protect our communities and children.

Please lend your support by signing a letter to state legislators advocating for common-sense gun safety measures. 

To sign, please email Vicki Schroeder by Friday, January 14th.
