Boulder Interfaith Vigil for Charleston Victims

The group Showing Up for Racial Justice is putting together a simple interfaith vigil this Tuesday, June 23, in Boulder, to mourn the deaths and honor the lives of the nine black people murdered in Charleston at the Emanuel AME Church. We will gather in support and solidarity, and to call for a world in which #blacklivesmatter.

Please join people of faith/spirit to grieve, love and raise consciousness around anti-Black violence.

I will be there and hope others from the Jewish community can join too.

Here’s the facebook page.

The offering will go to Black Lives Matter 5280.

We will meet at Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave, Boulder, Colorado, 80303 on Tuesday, June 23rd at 7:00 pm-8:30 pm.

  1. why was this sent on the 24th?

    • It was published on the night of the 22nd, and was supposed to be sent by our mail service on the 23rd. We don't know why the mail service misfired on the 23rd, but when that happens, it goes out the next day. We apologize for the delay.
