By December 2014, the 2nd anniversary of the Newtown shootings, more than 60,000 Americans nationwide will have died from gunshot wounds. We must continue to shed the light on the epidemic of gun violence in our nation until these gun deaths are reduced. The Newtown Foundation and the Washington National Cathedral will host a 2nd annual national vigil service of mourning and loving remembrance for all who have fallen victim to the ongoing epidemic of gun violence in America on December 11th in Washington D.C-near the 2nd anniversary date of the Sandy Hook tragedy. We are also looking for faith organizations or gun violence prevention groups to hold a concurrent vigil in each of the 50 states.
Please join families of victims of gun violence and special guests in honoring all Americans affected by gun violence and/or hold a concurrent vigil in your home state.
Please sign up here to host a vigil in your state and we will send you a Vigil Tool Kit:
Please view our tribute video from last year's National Vigil for All Gun Violence Victims:
