The exhibit is up through the end of January with events Jan 5, Jan 13, and Jan 19. Follow us on Facebook for event updates! Jeresneyka Rose, contributing artist to “Another Way is Possible,” and RAWtools Board member. Photo by Authentic Culture Photography Action Around the Country Another way is possible. It's already in the making . 11 years since Sandy Hook..it takes more than thoughts and prayers. We're grateful for Rawtools Buffalo which has set up a Peacemaker team with Junior High students helping elementary students with conflict resolution. We're grateful for RAWtools South which is launching next year and will provide mentorship opportunities in the blacksmith shop for youth. We're grateful for RAWtools Philly for the stipends they pay youth to help them make garden tools, jewelry and art out of destroyed firearms. We're grateful for the youth that practiced non-violence at a recent Guns To Gardens Metro Denver event while an adult onlooker heckled and called them names. We're grateful for our partners with Swords To Plowshares Northeast for the work they do with youth workshops nearly every weekend of the summer, making tools and jewelry from destroyed firearms. We're grateful for New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence and their partnership with youth at RFK highschool in Albuquerque who make garden tools and instruments out of destroyed gun parts and dozens of community murals. We're grateful for volunteers across the country growing the Guns to Gardens movement like Presbyterian Peace Fellowship to make a better world. There are so many more to thank for your time and effort to support our work. Donate to support our work! Jerry Martin holds a hot gun barrel as Indigo Miller helps make a garden tool.

View this email in your browser Our Shop was busy in June! We had various smiths and helpers in our shop in June, laboring 1 minute for every life lost to gun violence in 2022 - that’s 44,357 minutes. We surpassed our goal with 50,015 minutes forged by smiths across the country in honor of lives lost to gun violence. Be sure to check out our Instagram and Facebook pages to see the unique items made during the marathon! We’ll have a month-long exhibit at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center for the month of December, opening on Friday Dec 1st with a gun to garden tool demonstration as well! Many items will be auctioned online. Stay tuned for updates! A busy Shop means more inventory! It might be our biggest batch since our first one, over 50 tools, more necklaces and of course great swag to help spread the word! Go to the RAWtools Shop! Copyright (C) 2023 RAWtools.

View this email in your browser A small batch of tools are ready, but… If you have purchased tools before, please allow others to have an opportunity. We’re working on plans to have more available, more often, in 2023. Please order by Dec 14 if you want it to arrive before Dec 25. Check out our new shirts, the Beating Guns book, and other items like the Disarm Hearts Earrings! Remember, we have two stores, with items being made in Colorado Springs, as well as Philadelphia. Orders from each store are billed and shipped separately. This allows each Co-Op location to remain locally funded. Shop the RAWtools store Donate to our year end fundraiser! We’re a part of local group of nonprofits Each year the Pikes Peak region has nonprofits that are a part of a group effort to raise funds at the end of the year. You can donate at the above link or through our website! Oh, and we did 10 buybacks this year! 8 of those were in partnership with the Denver Broncos and the cities of Denver and Aurora. Read a great article wrapping it all up ! Overall we brought in over 1,000 guns in 10 buybacks in 2022 that will be upcycled into garden tools and other lovely things in 2023.

December marks 7 years since the San Bernardino shooting, 10 years since the shooting at Sandy Hook, 15 years since the shooting at New Life church in Colorado Springs, and just weeks since the Club Q shooting and two Virginia shootings. Sadly, there are others. This is A LOT to hold. The ones we don’t hear about are happening in the background. Mass shootings are a small percentage of gun violence overall, but also carry a unique effect with the complexity of community trauma. Trauma can take you in different directions and its important to have access to systems of care. Some people get involved in activism, some get involved in causes their lost loved one cared about. Many get access to therapy. Some become therapists. A podcast was released this week, Still Newtown , reflecting on how people have responded in different ways in the ten years since. Give it a listen when your soul is ready to hold that space. Its important to honor each survivors language, pace, and timing for dealing with their experience and grief. While RAWtools works through a restorative lens, we recognize those who have lost loved ones to gun violence will never feel fully restored to the life they had prior to their trauma. Purpose can be hard to find again. The most important act we can do is be present with our network that has experienced this pain. Keep being present. If you are a survivor, keep leaning into your community to help spread out the weight you carry. Be kind to yourself. The following is said in the context of being in Colorado Springs weeks after a mass shooting at an LGBTQ+ night club. There is a lot of anger and rage and grief happening at once, all valid. The community is moving to a place of feeling a need to take action, that is, its trying to answer the question, “What do we do now (and how)?” Viktor Frankl said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” RAWtools is partnering with the Restorative Rainbow Alliance and local partners to offer safe space for our community to process. Monthly gatherings over the next 4-6 months - listening circles, art therapy, maybe some garden tools. We don’t know what is at the other end of it, but it will hold anger and pain, love and rage, grief and desperate hope. Whether you are a direct victim or survivor of gun violence, or someone who has experienced vicarious trauma through a connection to gun violence, look for the spaces you feel you have the energy to speak freedom into. Freedom for you, freedom for your friends and loved ones, freedom for your community. It doesn’t have to be this way. Copyright (C) 2022 RAWtools. All rights reserved.

Give where it matters to you. Give to your local LGBTQ+ organization that offers resources to help them live their life. In Colorado Springs, you can donate to Inside Out Youth Services If there is more to give, you can also donate to RAWtools below. Above: Initial Memorial - Below: Memorial at Club Q Our response to the Club Q shooting in our home town of Colorado Springs has taken several forms, but especially in helping to offer safe and inclusive chaplain service at the memorial as well as over $9,000 in direct support of victims, their families and the larger LGBTQIA+ community. We are working to help plan monthly gatherings to care for those affected by by the shooting, to help them grieve and process long after the news cycle moves to the next mass shooting. As a Christian organization we cannot ignore the historical pain that the local Christian context has had on the LGBTQIA+ community. We name it as hate and a contributing factor to harm caused against the Queer community here and in our country. The Pikes Peak region is also one of the largest, gun owning per capita, places in the country. Club Q showed us what happens when the above are combined. We urge you to be more explicit in your love and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community. One affirming adult in the life of a Queer youth exponentially drops their risk of harm. RAWtools is committed to the work of disarming hearts and forging tools of death into tools that cultivate life to provide communities that afford a full life to all, but especially those who have been marginalized.
