Working Group: Nonviolence and Gun Violence
This working group combines a focus on the broader issues of practical and engaged nonviolence, in the spirit of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Aung San Suu Kyi. Sowers Of Justice Network is meeting monthly in the process of gathering individuals and representatives from local organizations to engage with us in planning our strategy and presence relating to the culture of gun violence. We believe that it is of vital importance to show that people of faith in our city can and do support changing this culture. Join us as we claim our moral and spiritual resources to offer a broad-based presence to engage the public on the topic of gun violence and ask what if peace, nonviolence and compassion supplanted violence in our community. .
Projects have included; a series of events, Nonviolence in the City, held at various churches, mosques and faith communities. They have typically included a speaker and prayerful rituals relating to nonviolence. Also, a series of films with discussion have been held at during the spring and summer of 2014, and continuing with film showing at the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hops, on the last Friday’s of the Month—hosted by Sowers of Justice.
