Sister Joetta Venneman, director of the social and environmental justice office, attended and shared these photos from the March for Our Lives rally in Louisville. Those at the rally were calling for sensible gun reform laws and an end to gun violence.

The rally was one of several around the nation planned by Moms Demand Action and other co-sponsors. Included in the list of speakers were Mayor Fisher, Congressman John Yarmuth, a couple of youth and Rose Smith, head of The ACE Project, who lost a son to gun violence.

    Saying that people not guns is a poor excuse. In Belize it was machetes which were more available than guns. We do not need “war” machines with huge magazines on the streets or in the homes.

    I think this gun violence says a lot about ‘parenting skills’ passed on or not to children about guns. There are so many ‘broken homes’ where children may not have ‘good ‘modeling’ from parents or children might be ‘friends’ with the wrong people….

    Collective action – let our government leaders know this lack of gun control is unacceptable. Thank you for marching, Joetta!

    Thanks, Joetta, for participating and for these pictures! Jim and I joined in a march in Cleveland where it was said to be 30,000 + marchers! That was a great day, as well!

      Thanks, Joetta! This has got to stop.
      Glad Yarmouth and Fisher were there. We in Kentucky have much “for the people leadership.
      Again thanks!
