PRESS RELEASE to Minneapolis StarTribune:
Statement on Guns in Support of Young Victims of Mass Shootings:

In response to the many thoughtful letters to the editor in our local media, Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers, an alliance of 65 peace and justice organizations in our state, is speaking out in support of the common-sense spoken by young people who are the victims of mass shootings. The old arguments used by policy makers to continue to do nothing to prevent these mass shootings becomes meaningless as the young people speak truth to power.

We are not safer with more guns. No other country comes close to our per capita death rate by guns. We do not have a greater percentage of mental illness. What we do have, by far, is a greater number of available guns per capita than other countries.

These young people are not going to give up until they get some common-sense answers and neither should we.

Many of MAP’s organizations have been active for 20, 30 even 40 years. In 1995 we decided we’re stronger together. Check out the Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers website:

mapm.org

There you will find actions and events of our member organizations. You will also find our Mission Statement, Guiding Principles, a list of member organizations with an application form to join us.

Together We Are Stronger!

Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers Delegate Council usually meets every other month (February - December) on the second Tuesday, 11am-1pm in the Jackman Room, Plymouth Congregational Church, 1900 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis 55403 (Corner of Franklin and Lasalle). The next regular Delegate Council meeting is April 10.

MAP Communications:
The AOT, MAP's online communications system that used to post Actions with accompanying Calendar events and Messages no longer is functioning. MAP's leadership is looking for a replacement for this system. In the meantime, we are asking members to check the http://mapm.org website homepage periodically for any news involving the entire membership, such as meeting announcements.

Additionally, please check MAP's Facebook Page which often includes some member organizations' Events or Actions.
Thank you for your patience and important work you do.
