We stand in solidarity with the community of El Paso, Gilroy, Charleston, Dayton and all community impacted by gun violence and hate.

Today, we must reaffirm our commitment to defeat the vile white supremacy worldview. It is a moral imperative that we ALL speak out. This vigils will be to not only remember and celebrate the lives lost, but also for recommitting to confront the contemptible worldview behind the violence committed. Whether you work with an organization, church, business, or just want to express your individual support with family and neighbors, now is the time to speak out.

What’s been polluted by hatred and racist violence, will be cleansed by joining our hearts and our voices in a collective sign of compassion and solidarity - to alleviate the pain, to confront injustice, to fortify our resistance.
