Time 7:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Event Type Vigil/Ritual
Organizer/AuthorVarious religious & peaceful groups
Location Details
Multiple vigils around SF Bay Area (see list below)
Tragically, mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, left 49 people dead and 48 wounded, including children on Friday, March 15th.

Many have already come together at vigils in the San Francisco Bay Area, unified by grief, to mourn the victims and honor the shared humanity of all people. An attack on Muslims is an attack on everyone.

"We stand together against violence and vow to practice peace towards each other. We stand together because we are stronger together" --Khadija Hansia, vigil at the Islamic Center of Mill Valley (KQED News).

More vigils being held around the San Francisco Bay Area over the next few days.
