Bulletin Insert for TRIGGER documentary
Download a bulletin insert to help promote "TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence" documentary.
Marie, Resource centers can get a copy of the documentary for $5.00 by ordering online (http://store.pcusa.org/2541212006) or by phone: 1-800-524-2612 (when calling, reference PDS# 25412-12-006). Thanks!
How can resource centers get a copy of Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence to go with the resources listed above? Having it available for our congregations should be a both/and along with lobbying NBC local stations to air it. I would like to have it as an adult ed study option for Epiphany and Lent.
