Vigil: Refugees are welcome; hate is not: EVENT CANCELLED
October 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Vigil for Sunday 10/22 has been cancelled.
Join the First Parish community for a vigil in front of our meetinghouse on Sunday, October 22, 3:30 – 4:00 to stand in opposition to local and international hostility and atrocities against refugees. Our message is Refugees are welcome, hate is not.
We will be making signs at 3:00 and then stand vigil at 3:30.
Following the vigil all are welcome to proceed to the sanctuary for a 4:00-6:00 workshop led by Standing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), where we will discuss concrete things people and organizations can do and review the different kinds of courage that are needed to confront white supremacist here in MA and beyond.
All are welcome to any part of this important afternoon for justice.
