Episcopalians across the country join March for Our Lives

Episcopalians across the country join March for Our Lives

On Saturday, marches were held across the country protesting gun violence, called collectively March for Our Lives. The protest was organized largely by high school students, in particular the survivors of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, FL. Episcopalians joined the marches in many cities. Here are some of the pictures:

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.
