<h1>2014 National Gun Violence Sabbath Weekend is March 13-16</h1>

Places of worship across the nation are joining the Washington National Cathedral and Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a coalition of 50 national denominations and faith-based organizations (including EHM), to remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of the loss of a loved one, and to continue the discussion on how communities of faith can work together to help reduce gun violence.

The weekend will include events from coast to coast, including a centerpiece kickoff event at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on the evening of Thursday, March 13.  This event will be live streamed beginning at 4pm Eastern at this link

There will also be a live webcast. At 6:30 pm, in Perry Auditorium, clergy and national leaders discuss how we move forward as people of faith and sustain ourselves in our work to prevent gun violence.
