About 80 people joined us at Temple Beth Shalom in Topeka for the "Mother's Day March for Reducing Gun Violence." Representatives of Heeding God's Call, Moms Against Gun Violence, Kansas Interfaith Action and Kansans for a Gun Free Campus spoke, remembering those who have died from gun violence and calling for effective steps to be taken to address this growing and tragic problem.
Rev. January Kiefer sang a soulful rendition of "Motherless Child", and Rev. Betty Glover led an appreciation for Topeka's police chaplains.
The event was covered by the local news; the article in the Capital-Journal can be found here.
