Marching Against Gun Violence

Georgia Episcopalians march against gun violence in Salt Lake City

Episcopalians from the Diocese of Georgia joined together with the group Bishops United Against Gun Violence for a prayerful procession through the streets of Salt Lake City. The gathering, held as a part of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church, urged people of faith to seek common ground in efforts to curtail gun violence–such as through encouraging background checks.

The event, called Claiming Common Ground Against Gun Violence, lasted roughly one hour and covered a one-mile route, including opening prayers, a stop for testimony in nearby Pioneer Park, and concluding prayers outside the Salt Palace.
