In June, 2013, high school students from the Interfaith Youth Leadership Initiative will travel to Washington DC to meet with policymakers to share our growing concerns with gun violence in our schools, places of worship, and communities. Our religious traditions encourage civic engagement. This issue is important to us because every day in the United States, approximately 300 people, including 65 children and teens, are injured or killed with guns in murders, assaults, suicides, and accidents. We believe that all human life is sacred, and as people of faith and conscience, we believe we have a duty to help make our country as safe as possible. The correction to violence is peace, and peacemaking stands at the heart of all of our religious traditions. We recommend that our elected officials enact common sense gun safety laws to help stop this tide of violence.
We’re meeting with policy makers next week, so please sign this petition. Every signature adds weight to our message!

We are a group of interfaith high school students traveling to Washington DC in June to advocate against gun violence. We will be meeting with elected officials and religious advocacy groups to learn how we can affect civic discourse and policy. Help us raise money for our trip!
Hey guys! So this summer, there is this amazing trip to Washington D.C. this summer with an amazing interfaith group of high school students to discuss gun policy with various officials and groups. However, as I’m sure you can imagine, sending 7 high school students across the country isn’t cheap (especially when you need to account for all the pork-free marshmallows the Jewish and Muslim kids are “using to bond”. those are expensive). The group isn’t asking for donations, but any purchase of this shirt will help them pay for this amazing opportunity, and you get a really cool shirt in return (it has an awesome anti-violence quote and the knotted gun from outside the U.N. building). Plus, in addition to supporting an Anti-Gun-Violence cause, you’re supporting an amazing opportunity for interfaith cooperation between teenagers. Please support!
