Mission Statement: Nuns Against Gun Violence is a coalition of Catholic Sisters and their allies that affirms the value of human life through prayer, education, and advocacy for common sense, evidence-based, gun violence prevention. 

Nuns Against Gun Violence was founded in April 2023 to bring together congregations of Catholic sisters to speak with a united voice against the crisis of gun violence. Along with over 60 other communities, Mercy has been involved in building this collaborative which meets bi-weekly to share resources and events and plan advocacy efforts.
