Worship & Vigil for Black Lives at Friends Center

Addressing Racism

In the wake of the killings of Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott this week, and the long line of killings, suffering, injustice and sorrow that came before, more than 30 Friends were called to take visible action in the courtyard of Friends Center on September 21, to bear witness that the police killing must stop, and to join together in worship for our own healing from the trauma of it all.

This was an impromptu idea of something immediate to do in light of the urgency, but going forward the event organizers hope to find more ways to come together for this visible witness and action together as a Friends Center community, and in connection/solidarity with organizations carrying the long term work
