#RisingForCharleston is a grassroots response from Everytown.org. They are committed to prayer, healing and action.
They are rising for the nine people who were gunned down in their bible study group in Charleston. They are rising for the people who are gunned down every day from gun violence. They are rising for the communities of color who are victimized every day. They are rising to call upon elected officials to act.
Everytown.org calls upon all of us to act. On their website, you can join the call for prayer on Wednesday, June 24th, you can act by contacting lawmakers and you can support their faith leaders’ network.
It is a movement to end gun violence and build safer communities in every town. #RiseForCharleston believes in turning grief into action.
