Rabbis Against Gun Violence Resource Packet

On Wednesday, December 14th, 2106, the 4th Annual National Vigil for All Gun Violence Victims will be held in Washington, D.C. at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, launching local vigils and commemorations across the nation from December 14-18th. Congregations from coast to coast will participate – offering prayers, songs, and education. Faith communities will remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of gun related injuries or the loss of a loved one, and educate one another on proven strategies to reduce gun violence. Your congregation, community, school or family can participate by incorporating songs, readings, poems, prayers, sermons and/or discussions in your service, at a community gathering or vigil, or around your family Shabbat table. This Resource Packet has ready-to-use materials, suggestions, and links to other sources that make it easy for you to find what you might want or need to make this happen.

Beyond Clean: Syringe Exchange and the Role of the Church

Syringe access, harm reduction, and the human rights of drug users are issues not often discussed in the Church. I wrote this piece to begin or broaden the conversation. If your faith community is already discussing syringe access or would like to, please message me (particularly if you are in Appalachia or the Deep South).
