Members of the national faith community had long tired of being parked on the sidelines, watching idly as kids senselessly and violently mowed down their fellow brothers and sisters like so many blades of grass.
Rev.

PICO works with 1,000 religious congregations in more than 200 cities and towns through its 60 local and state federations
