Members of Congregation Beth Elohim and other area congregations joined the One Million Moms for Gun Control NYC rally on Monday morning, the observed holiday of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday.
The theme drew its inspiration from Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of nonviolence and vision of a better future for America’s children. Participants planned show local, state and federal leaders that we are demanding immediate, meaningful action on common-sense gun control legislation. The march began at Cadman Plaza Park at 9:15 am., and proceeded over Brooklyn Bridge at 9:35 a.m. to City Hall Park for speakers at 10:30 a.m.
Another march is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 26 in Washington, DC.
