Peace in Our World, Peace in Our Streets

About the event

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 Executive Director 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.

Rev. Bob Moore, Coalition for Peace Action;  Tonyehn Verkitus, Physicians for Social Responsibility Pennsylvania;  Larry Holman, Veterans for Peace Q&A 2:4O PM to 3:OO PM

We hope you’ll join us for an inspiring and practical look at what we can all do to save and educate Americans – especially our children – from gun violence and its effects on our communities.
