Join RAWtools, The Peace Pastor Marty Troyer, Texas Gun Sense and others on Friday, March 10th at 6:45pm as we turn guns into garden tools and learn of a 3rd way of addressing gun violence.

RAWtools, Inc. gets its scriptural motivation from Isaiah 2:4 and Micah 4:3. We want to be comprehensive in our efforts to move our communities away from gun violence and violence as a whole. Its not enough to just make a lot of tools from guns. We need to help teach each other new ways to solve our problems through relationship, dialogue, and alternative means of justice, i.e. Restorative Justice practices and victim-offender dialogue.
