Bishops United Against Gun Violence
Bishop Thompson is one of the 60 bishops across the Episcopal Church who make up the Bishop’s United Against Gun Violence. These bishops have come together to explore means of reducing the appalling levels of gun violence in our society, and to advocate for policies and legislation that save lives.
They are working against gun violence by:
- Forming relationships and coalitions with interfaith colleagues, fellow advocates, and families whose lives have been touched by gun violence;
- Giving voice to voiceless gun violence victims through public liturgy, advocacy, and prayer; and
- Supporting one another in our efforts to end gun violence in our communities.
Visit the Bishop United Against Gun Violence website for more information and resources.
