Columbine UU Church belongs to Colorado Faith Communities to End Gun Violence (CFCU)
CFCU is an interfaith coalition of twenty-three congregations working to decrease gun deaths in Colorado through advocacy, increase gun safety, action and education. “In Dr. King’s words, we need to feel the ‘fierce urgency of now.’
Because people are dying. and the constant excuses for inaction no longer suffice.”
Gun violence and gun safety issues have been a concern of our church since the Columbine High School shootings that occurred so close to us and deeply affected our community and congregation. Tanya Coulter is Columbine’s CFCU representative. There are twenty-three participating congregations, united with the purpose of decreasing gun deaths in Colorado through advocacy, action and education. CFCU keeps current on important issues and encourages its members to take action by calling, writing or emailing our Colorado legislators. Tell them you are a UU and these are your values. Beside keeping us current on legislation, CFCU presents speakers, workshops and other educational opportunities to learn about preventing gun violence. Please contact Tanya if you would like to add your support or for more information at: [email protected].
