Friends are advised to acknowledge and celebrate our interconnectedness with the natural world, and to share with our children and others our love for God’s creation. We are encouraged to live lives that nurture both ourselves and the Earth. We are urged to pay attention to such concerns as population growth, climate change, sustainable energy policies, and right sharing of natural resources.

Gun violence is up horribly in many places during the pandemic, including in CT. This is a Gun Buyback project that will get more guns off the street and out of homes where they are no longer wanted. We will actually transform the turned-in guns into garden tools! Would you support us now so we can launch this unique "Gun Buyback Day" in Norwalk, Connecticut? We are the Wilton Quaker Meeting.

Guns into Gardening Tools from the gun buyback we ran late last year!

We presented a number of gardening tools to Fodor Farm, the Norwalk community garden.

Also, a plaque with 2 of the tools commemorating the transformation of tools of death to those of life and sustenance. That's Dianne Keefe from our Quaker Meeting and Bishop Jim Curry, co-founder of Swords to Plowshares NE.

Friend Peter Murchison was featured on FCNL Quaker Welcome Center online on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Peter is a member of Wilton Quaker Meeting, co-clerk of Ministry and Oversite and an outspoken advocate for gun violence prevention. He engages in this important work in honor of his nephew, Daniel Barden - one of the children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.
