Gun Violence

  • Bellingham's first Wear Orange event, organized by the Committee for Gun Responsibility at First Congregational Church, was a success! In case you missed it, here is video of the speakers.

  • Wear Orange! is a national coming together of communities to honor and remember people who have been lost to gun violence and to celebrate the strides we are making to put end to the bloodshed.

  • Every child deserves to make it through the school day alive. We grieve for and with the families and friends of those who will never come home again.. We decry our complicity with providing legal and easy access to weapons no one needs. And we grieve a Congress that lacks the conviction to place the safety of our children and adult citizens above political aspirations.
