End gun violence: B-PEACE calls everyone to Sept. 13 public action at Smith & Wesson

B-PEACE for Jorge banner

The B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign of the Diocese of Massachusetts, in partnership with the Diocese of Western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley Project, invites participation in a public witness outside the corporate headquarters of Smith & Wesson (2100 Roosevelt Avenue) in Springfield on Friday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m.

Bishop Alan M. Gates plans to participate.  One hope for this action is to have as many people present as possible, joining voices to ask gun manufacturers to be part of the solution to end gun violence.

B-PEACE is organizing bus transportation from Boston to Springfield; register in advance here.  For more information, contact the campaign organizers directly at bpeace@ssypboston.org.
