100 orange stoles

In 2016, in the run-up to the second annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day, I began making orange stoles to bring the #WearOrange movement, with its focus on life and hope, back to church.

It wasn’t exactly nor entirely my idea. As I prepare to send out the 100th orange stole, Sojourners takes up the story:

    As a member of Moms Demand Action, Episcopalian, and mother, I thank you. I just volunteered at another Be Smart for Kids talking to people about how to keep guns away from kids. I always leave those events wondering at how unsafe some people are and fulfilled by at least one person saying, “Oh, yeah! I should ask about guns at houses where I’m sending my kids to play!”
