Riding to Washington to Honor Victims and Prevent Gun Violence
Members of First Unitarian Church are involved in all sorts of social justice work. In its article on the Sandy Hook ride and rally, the News-Journal did not identify me as a church member (I also wear the hat of communications director of the Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence), but I’ve been working on this ride and rally for weeks now.
Suzanne Perry has organized a group of First Unitarian cyclists to join in the ride. If you want to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the details. You’ll need to be at the Center for Creative Arts in Yorklyn by 9:30 (the paper said 10:00) on Monday morning. Let Suzanne know you’re coming—and wear a Standing on the Side of Love shirt if you have one. (If you don’t, I can probably remedy that.)
But you don’t have to ride a bike to support the cause. Show up a at the Hockessin PAL Center by 10:00 (not 10:30 as in the News-Journal) and cheer Team 26 as they arrive for a brief stop and then pedal on toward Washington.
P.S.: The incorrect times in the paper are not the reporter’s fault—they are mine. The timing changed and I did not update robin brown.
