BUMC's Gun Violence Prevention Ministry works closely with other local congregations to raise awareness about the incidence of injuries and death from gun violence in our community. We are also actively engaged in seeking ways to change our local and national laws to prevent future tragedies. See BUMC'S monthly newsletter, The Messenger for more information. Temple Sinai, one of our partners in the DC Area Interfaith Gun Violence Prevention Network, and Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence are holding a zoom panel discussion on Thursday, October 14th, 7:00 pm.

To speak out against gun violence, you can email your state Delegates and state Senator and tell them this is an important issue to you (click here to find their information).
We invite you to download this sample letter to get started.
