Dec. 10 — Victims of Gun Violence Remembrance Vigil

Featured

This December marks four years since the devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

At UUFSD we mark the anniversary by participating in a *national vigil*, to gather and honor the 20 children and 6 adults killed that day and the thousands of others who have died by bullets since then.

Please join us in Founders Hall on Saturday, December 10th. We will gather at 4:30, the vigil will be held from 5:00 until 6:00 pm and is open to the public.

The vigil is an opportunity to hold space with one another and to heal. We will hear from gun violence prevention leaders, a gun violence victim from our own fellowship and be graced with the music of Emma’s Revolution.
