Gun Violence Prevention

You are here: Home / Justice Teams / Gun Violence Prevention

Mission Statement:

We work on the problem of gun violence by sharing updated data, keeping track of gun violence statistics, and advocating for many practical, common sense policies that would reduce gun violence in our country. We recognize that gun violence affects lower income communities disproportionately. We support the Black Lives Matter movement and we abhor unnecessary gun violence in all forms.

Team Leaders:

Tom Buglio, Unitarian Congregation of West Chester
