Taking Action to End Gun Violence

2015MemorialMedical Mission Sisters in Philadelphia are participating in an interfaith “T-Shirt Memorial to the Lost,” which is trying to raise public awareness of the tragic toll exacted by gun violence. The T-shirts displayed on our Northeast Philadelphia property bear the names of 207 persons killed by guns in the city in 2014. This is part of a national effort called “Taking Action to End Gun Violence.” Many passersby have asked about the Memorial and have added their voices to the many who advocate for peace in our world.
