Heeding God's Call

Welcome to Heeding God's Call

Heeding God’s Call is a faith-based movement to prevent gun violence. We unite people of faith in the sacred responsibility to protect our brothers, sisters and children.

  • We embrace Dr. Martin Luther King’s hope for peace and safety in our communities.
  • We resist apathy to this epidemic of violence, because fear, closed doors, and separation will not end it.
  • We unite to bring God’s vision of a peaceable kingdom, without the violent loss of over 30,000 American lives by gunfire each year.

God is calling us to ACT to end the violence, trauma and despair
