Member organizations of the Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence will hold an afternoon of "Remembrance and Resolve," pledging to never forget Newtown, at First Church Boston (66 Marlborough Street, Boston) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14, the one-year anniversary of the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. 

The program will begin with an event co-sponsored by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns (part of more than 50 nation-wide "No More Silence" day of action events), featuring U.S. Congressman John Tierney, gun violence survivors and community leaders.  This will be immediately followed at 2:00 by additional speakers, including: Mayor-Elect Marty Walsh, State Representatives David Linsky and Tom Conroy, Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, homicide survivors Tina Chery and Kim Odom, Cindy Diggs, and John Rosenthal, founder of Stop Handgun Violence. The speaking program will be followed by a candlelight vigil and service.
