Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention

A Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention was recently formed in the Synod. Anyone with a special interest in gun violence prevention should contact Pr. Dan Gibson if you’d like to work with us!

Lutheran – Episcopal Joint Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Formed

The Southwest California Synod of the ELCA is pleased to announce the formation of the Joint Gun Violence Prevention Task Force with the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, a partnership to educate and advocate for the prevention and reduction of gun violence in our communities.

Bishop Guy Erwin praised the formation of the Task Force saying, “Jesus’ message of peace calls Christians to be peacemakers in our communities—and, I believe, to resist the culture of violence in our society…I’m very encouraged by the creation of this new Task Force and proud that people in our synod are stepping up to work for change in Los Angeles and beyond.”

The Task Force invites anyone with a special interest in gun violence prevention to contact Pr. Dan Gibson at dwgibson61@gmail.com or 323-371-1001.
