As part of the national “Too Many Victims” campaign, there will be a vigil in Raleigh on Sunday, January 8. That day is the one-year anniversary of the Tucson shootings, which claimed the lives of six and wounded 13 others, including Congressperson Gabrielle Giffords. The vigil will remember all of those who have been killed or injured by gun violence.
Raleigh’s vigil will be at Community United Church of Christ, 814 Dixie Trail, Raleigh, at 6:00 p.m. The speaker will be the Rev. Rachel Smith. Rachel became involved in gun violence prevention as a leader in the Million Moms March in 2000 and is the author of the worship guide for God not Guns Sabbath . She is a member of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, one of the Council’s member congregations.
