Weaving the Circle to Protect Children from Gun Violence

Weaving the Circle to Protect Children from Gun Violence

Video and text by Rodger Routh

On Dec.28, 2012, AFSC Iowa joined with several other groups in coming together as community to weave a circle of protection around our children from violence. People gathered at Hubble Elementary School in Des Moines to show support for a conversation on how people can protect our children from violence.

Engage our influence in our groups, faith communities. Spend time with children, reading, in play, and talking together.
