Walkout Against Gun Violence

WOAV poster

Tomorrow… Friday, April 20, at 10 a.m. on Eisenhower Lawn, several student organizations are sponsoring a “Walkout Against Gun Violence” event in an effort to bring greater attention to the growing issue of gun violence in our nation. This event coincides with the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting and other national walkout events across the U.S.

This event, which is scheduled to last about an hour, is organized by several students in collaboration with many of the Messiah College Student Government Association’s executive organizations, including the Student Activities Board, Multicultural Council, Human Rights Awareness in the Agapé Center, and Minds Matter.Speakers for this event will include: President Kim Phipps, Student Body President Jamie-Claire Chau, as well as other student leaders, faculty and campus administrators. This is not a partisan or political event, and accordingly, we ask that all behavior and expression at the event be respectful, peaceful and avoid divisive discourse. Rather, our stated purposes and goals for this event are:

Purpose: To raise awareness of a growing human rights issue; to demonstrate to the outside community that Messiah College and, by extension, the Christian Church cares about survivors, victims, and all others affected by gun violence; and to not stand by passively and actively engage in the practice of shalom and reconciliation.

Goals:
To demonstrate our commitment to the Brethren in Christ legacy of pacifism
To demonstrate a unified front on behalf of Messiah students, faculty, administrators and staff
To demonstrate that this is not a partisan, politically affiliated event
To increase student and staff engagement in human rights issues by providing resources and ideas for ways they can help
To honor the lives lost to mass shootings, suicide, homicide and all other forms of gun violence

We invite you all to join us at 10 a.m. for this event. Professors and other staff have been made aware in advance of this event. If you have class during this time, you are encouraged to speak to your individual professor, but we cannot guarantee that this will be an excused absence.

During this same week, Human Rights Awareness is displaying a memorial to local victims of gun violence on Eisenhower Lawn. This “Memorial to the Lost” is part of the work of Heeding God’s Call, a Christian organization that works against gun violence nationally. College Ministries and HRA are hosting a Tuesday night chapel on April 17 at 7 p.m. that will be a memorial service for local victims of gun violence.

Thank you!
Your Student Government Association
