53 homicides since 2020 is too many.

The blood cries out, and a growing collective is responding to bloodshed with nonviolence. The work of nonviolence is actively putting ourselves in the way of conflict for the sake of a growing peace that we hope someday will include our enemies. It is time in our city to cry for peace.

On 9/24, we will proclaim and demonstrate our hope for peace in New Haven by holding a march against gun violence that will begin at 1:30pm in the seven different places where there has been a homicide in 2022. It will culminate with a rally on the Green at 3:00pm where we will share our concrete asks for our city to join us in lament, celebration, and four policy-related asks we believe can bring peace to our city.

Have a question? E-mail josh@elmcityvineyard.org. Are you a family member of someone who has been killed or impacted by violence? Please contact Josh if you’d like to speak.
