Members of The Unitarian Church in Summit and the larger community have been planning a vigil for this Saturday in Summit’s green. The vigil will mark the one-year anniversary of the shootings at the Shady Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. That tragedy which left 20 children ages 6 and 7 and six staff members at the school dead, left our community and others asking how we can prevent gun violence.
Saul Simon of HomeTowne TV interviewed Kathy Allen Roth, member of the church, and Bonita Stevens, Union County Chapter Leader of the national non-partisan Organizing for Action group. The two women led the organizing efforts for this event, which is sponsored by the Summit Interfaith Council, among other local and national non-profits.
Please watch the interview and join us at 4 PM this Saturday (the foul-weather location is inside Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, right off the town green).
