In 2009 Heeding God’s Call’s public attention to Colosimo’s practices led to action by federal authorities. After months of public demonstrations organized by Heeding, US Attorney and ATF announced that Colosimo’s would be forced to close due to knowingly selling to straw buyers – exactly AS Heeding contended.

                  TO END GUN VIOLENCE                                                                                                                                         May 2, 2016

“Thank you for this stirring reminder of the lives lost to gun violence.  It is a powerful reminder of the work still left to do to create a more peaceful world—“

At a journaling station at The Memorial to the Lost we hear from many folks about how the Memorial and what Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence brings to all our neighborhoods.

“Thank you for bringing attention to this issue.  It’s awful how many victims there are.  May they rest in peace!”  Elise, age 13

Drawing attention to the great loss of life through gun violence in our neighborhoods is an important mission of Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence.  But, at this time, our financial situation is such that we may not be able to continue to share our Memorials to the Lost, our Murder Site Vigils, and other special services.  Without badly needed funds we may not be able to continue to reach out to our neighborhoods, to support survivors, and to remember and honor those who have lost their lives to gun violence.

We want to continue our mission.  But, without an immediate infusion of funds, we may have to discontinue life-saving activities.  We want to share the stories and continue to work for a more peaceful world.  But, without the financial help of our friends, neighbors, and past supporters we may have to discontinue activities.  Can we count on you to join us in this cause and support us financially today?

“Very powerful statement being made.  Important in times of crisis to remember we are one community.” MttL Journal

Can you help us to continue to work to bring peace to our, to your community?  Please give generously.
