As you know, it is time to come together once again in light of the one year anniversary of the December 14 tragedy in Newtown to tell our lawmakers that we support common sense measures to prevent gun violence in this country. We must let our lawmakers know that we will continue to sound the moral drumbeat until there is action. Please note that we invite faith and secular groups to join us as moral activists in this call-in day.Faiths Calling—Interfaith Call-in Day to Support Gun Violence Prevention—December 13thText "FaithsCalling" to 877-877 for a reminder message
Please send out word of our shared interfaith Call-in Day to Prevent Gun Violence on Friday, December 13th far and wide. Let's join together to call our Senators and say: It's been a year since Sandy Hook and another year of horrendous gun violence. Enough pain. Enough despair. Enough injustice. Enough inaction. We can and must transform our grief into action. We must vote again on and pass the compromise background check bill.

Website and Materials
We have created a website for this call-in day at www.faithscalling.org. At that website and attached to this email you will find a Faiths Calling marketing toolkit with some graphics and suggested language for your newsletters, Facebook, Twitter and blogs to help make it easy for you to share this call to action. Please spread the word to folks on your own team, your members and friends and to any partner organizations you think might be interested in participating. Don't forget a reminder on the 13th itself! When the day comes, we will update the website to enable participants to speak directly with their Senators at the click of a button. Please send us what you've shared so we can collaborate on best practices and celebrate our victories together.
Let's do this together! We need you to make this day a success.

What is deeper than our skin? Pure light. This morning's learning aimed to connect our Jewish moment (Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, Yom Ha'atzma'ut) with the Torah portions (Tazria Metzora) the memories of George Floyd z"l and Daunte Wright z"l, and the assault on Second Lt. Caron Nazario last night. #SayTheirNames #PursueJustice #BuildOnLove
