Our UCS congregation will vote at the annual meeting June 8, 2014, on whether or not to take a Public Stand on preventing gun violence.
The UCS Board of Trustees approved the call for this vote last fall after a congregational committee on gun-violence prevention presented a petition with more than enough signatures. Three programs on preventing gun violence are being presented this spring to educate the congregation on the subject.
Kathy Allen-Roth and Jim Stevenson head the committee, which formed in response to the Newtown shootings and other tragic incidents of gun violence around the country. If you have any questions about this vote, contact Kathy at PreventGunViolence2013@gmail.
