Coming Together for Peace

Join us for Coming Together for Peace: A Rally to End Gun Violence on Sunday, December 20, at 5 p.m. at the Old Grey Courthouse in Rockville. Responding to the recent spate of gun violence and the ongoing need for change, Montgomery County residents are saying “enough is enough.” According to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, on average each year more than 108,000 people in the U.S. are shot and 32,514 people die from gun violence.

Speakers will include County Executive Ike Leggett; Congressman Chris Van Hollen; Cathy Mitchell, County resident and mother of a Gun Violence victim; Robert Disney from the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence; and Police Chief Tom Manger. There will also be music, and the rally will end with the lighting of hundreds of candles.
