2 Programs on Preventing Gun Violence June 2 at Unitarian Church

Carole Stiller, president of the NJ Million Mom March Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, will lead a discussion at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at The Unitarian Church in Summit.

A silent march of 85 pairs of shoes left empty by gun violence in New Jersey will highlight a discussion with a leader in the state’s campaign for sensible gun regulation on Sunday, June 2, at The Unitarian Church in Summit, 4 Waldron Ave. (at Springfield Avenue).

Carol Stiller, president of the NJ Million Mom March Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, will share about her work at 4 p.m. in the congregation’s Fellowship Hall. The empty shoes will lead from the lobby down the stairs into the hall and will be on view during the church’s two morning services at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

All the events are free and open to the public. A question and answer session will follow Stiller's presentation.

Stiller, a resident of Ewing, will discuss state and federal legislation as well as interfaith efforts for preventing gun violence and for promoting the sensible storage and use of guns. She has been actively working for gun control since 2000, when she joined 850,000 others on a bus trip to Washington, DC, calling for Sensible Gun Laws/Safe Kids.

Since then, she helped build the Mercer County Million Mom March Chapter and has appeared around the state at rallies and film screenings to raise awareness about gun violence.

The display of 85 pairs of empty shoes represents the 85-plus victims of gun violence in New Jersey since the Newtown killings December 14. It is sponsored by Silent March: Americans Against Gun Violence, organized in 1994 to remember the many victims of gun-related homicides, suicides and accidental shootings.
