A two-day summit addressing the epidemic of gun violence in America will occur on Oct. 22-23 at Andover Newton Theological School (Boston, MA area).
This gathering will focus on the response by people of faith to the current situation in our country, and will provide action steps for how we can all work together to change the culture of guns and violence in our communities.
Keynote speakers include Attorney General Maura Healey (Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and Mayor Martin J. Walsh (City of Boston), and panels will feature more than a dozen speakers from law enforcement and religious and secular groups that are working to end the bloodshed in our neighborhoods.
They will also be honoring The Rev. Jeffrey L. Brown (MDiv ’87) with the Spirit of the Hill award at a special dinner on Thursday night. Rev. Brown is one of the founders of the Boston TenPoint Coalition, is president of Rebuilding Every Community Around Peace (RECAP), and is a new Trustee of Andover Newton Theological School.
