Gulf Central District
A Report from the Social Action Chair
Although summer is upon us, there is still lots to do. Connect with each other at www.UMWOnline.net and make new friends, find more action ideas for your local organization or circle. Register for Mission u. And please continue to read and take ACTION to reduce Gun Violence.
As mentioned in our May issue of Response, sign the petition to Congress to reduce gun violence at www.demandaplan.org. Call your US Senate and congressional representatives and urge them to support criminal background checks on all gun sales to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Spread the word. There are additional ideas on page 45 in the May issue.
For more information about UMW's involvement with Faiths United Against Gun Violence contact Julie Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-682-3633, ext. 3106 for the Office of Child and Family Advocacy.
Remember to be a Mission Today unit:
Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing at Mission u in July and Summer Fellowship in August.
Many blessing as we continue to work in missions, Lorraine Mayfield-Brown (email@example.com),
