A list of member bishops and conveners is here.

Who We Are

We are an ad hoc group of more than 30 Episcopal bishops who have come together to explore means of reducing the appalling levels of gun violence in our society, and to advocate for policies and legislation that save lives.

Our group is convened by Bishops Mark Beckwith of the Diocese of Newark, Ian Douglas of the Diocese of Connecticut and Eugene Sutton of the Diocese of Maryland, and includes more than 30 Episcopal bishops from across the United States.

From the website:

What We Do

We work against gun violence by:

Forming relationships and coalitions with interfaith colleagues, fellow advocates, and families whose lives have been touched by gun violence;

Giving voice to voiceless gun violence victims through public liturgy, advocacy, and prayer; and

Supporting one another in our efforts to end gun violence in our communities.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
