Andover Newton President on 6/25 Episode of "State of Belief"
Interview Spotlights School's Efforts on Gun Violence

President Martin B. Copenhaver discussed religion's role in addressing gun violence on the June 25 episode of State of Belief.

The Rev. Copenhaver was interviewed by the show's host, the Rev. Welton Gaddy, about the school's October 2015 summit on "Subverting the Gospel of Guns" and the recent congressional steps toward gun reforms in the wake of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The two-day summit brought together local civic, religious, and law enforcement leaders including the Commonwealth's attorney general and the mayor Boston to discuss how religious groups can work for stronger, more peaceful communities and common-sense gun control laws.

State of Belief is the nationally syndicated weekly radio show and podcast of the Interfaith Alliance.
