Election Eve Candlelight BLM Vigil & Blessing of the Ballot Box
Monday, November 2, 6 p.m. at UUC (outside)
Join the Racial Justice Team physically or in spirit for a Black Lives Matter Vigil and a blessing for ballot boxes throughout the US to lift up a vision of a peaceful and fair election, where all votes are counted, on the eve of one of the most consequential elections in our country’s history. Please bring a candle and/or other source of illumination and BLM signs if you have them (we will have some available). We will take extra care to stay physically distanced during the vigil and will create space for people to participate from their cars, as well. Please wear a mask and use the bathroom before you come. All ages are invited.
If you are unable to join us for safety or scheduling reasons and would like to share a song, a prayer or a reading to be part of the vigil, or, if you have questions, please contact Jewels Mellen.
“Today, and always, we must Never Forget the lives lost to the terror of racism, excessive force, and countless other injustices. To move forward, we must Never Forget the Black lives taken unjustly. We must demand policy changes, equality, and justice for all. In order to bring about lasting change, we must speak up, vote, and fight the cancer of inequality, racism, and white supremacy.” #SayTheirNames
