Forum to Reduce Gun Violence @ Calvary UM Church - Thursday, 3/15

The third forum to provide information, discussion and options for action is open to the public on Thursday, March 15, from 7:30 to 9:00 PM, at Calvary United Methodist Church, 185 W. Madison Ave, Dumont NJ (Btwn Cooper & Prospect) www.calvarydumont.com


The organizers of the Forums, Revs. Elaine Wing and Patricia Bruger, state  these are not political forums but rather places to debunk myths, learn facts, engage in respectful dialogue and to consider options for action.  "When we begin to understand gun violence as a public health issue and not a political or constitutional football, we will make progress in reducing senseless death in our schools, workplaces, and churches," stated Wing.  

The agenda for this forum includes a presentation by Sian Millard of Alternatives to Domestic Violence in Bergen County and sharing by representatives of three national grass roots organizations:  Bergen Campaign, Bergen County Chapter; Sandy Hook Promise; and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Bergen County.  The majority of this last Forum will be spent sharing information about organizations and actions that can be taken in the areas related to gun violence.  These include:  responsible gun ownership, mental health, suicide, parenting, and gun trafficking / arms trades.  

For more information, please call Rev. Elaine Wing at 201 317 5718.
