Interfaith Call-In Day

Faiths Calling
Spread the Word
Tested by our grief,
Inspired in our pursuit of justice,
Strengthened by our love for country and for God's children
Resolute in our faith.

We call on our lawmakers and say:
Enough pain. Enough despair. Enough injustice. We can and must transform our grief into action.

Ensure that the voices of faithful Americans ring throughout the halls of Congress.
Call your Senators and Representative and insist that they act to prevent gun violence.
We know that among millions of you in the faith community there are differences in viewpoint and we ask you to convey whichever policies with which you are comfortable. The major components of legislation that Congress is considering are listed below. When you call your Senators and Representative, let them know that you are calling as a member of the faith community, and emphasize those of the policies which you support.
  • Require universal background checks for all gun purchases
  • Ban semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines
  • Make gun trafficking a federal crime
  • Improve access to mental health services
Tell them that gun violence prevention laws work.
"The time is always right to do what is right"
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
