Interfaith Vigil for Michael Brown
Aug 28, 2014

The Lawrence interfaith community is organizing an important event in response to the death of Michael Brown and the ongoing events in Ferguson, MO.  Together, we are standing in solidarity with the victims of violence, calling for an end to institutionalized racism.

As one of the organizers, I speak for all of us in saying that we hope and pray for a large turnout for this interfaith vigil.  It is only a first step, but the symbolism of showing up in love and solidarity   -- and in our diversity -- is crucial. 

Here is the information:

Vigil for Michael Brown:  Lawrence Stands for Racial Justice

Thursday evening, August 28, 7:30 pm

St. Luke AME Church, 900 New York Street

At this point, speakers include representatives from the African and African American Studies Department at KU, St. Luke AME Church, the Islamic Center, Plymouth Congregational Church, Peace Mennonite Church, the Jewish Community Center, and the Unitarian Fellowship.

Let's show up in a gesture of solidarity -- Unitarian Universalists standing on the side of Love! (wear your yellow "Standing on the Side of Love" T-shirt)

In Peace, Christine Smith
