Candlelight Vigil for Lewiston Victims
Wednesday, November 01, 2023, 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC-05:00)
Unitarian Universalist Church
401 Kings Highway North
Cherry Hill, NJ 08034
Registration is not Required
We cannot let mass shootings like the one in Lewiston, Maine go by without acknowledging its atrocity. We cannot let these massacres become so routine that we become numb to them. We cannot normalize these tragedies and accept them as part of our American culture.
Meet in the church parking lot at 4:00 PM where we will have speakers and music. Bring your signs and candles. We will then march to the road front for the vigil on Kings Highway. Afterwards, we will meet back in the Church Commons area for hot drinks and to support one another. At the vigil we will share concrete actions you can take to end gun violence.
Feel free to share this message with anyone who might be interested and on social media. If you don't have a sign, meet Linda Abrams at the church at 3:30 on Wednesday to make signs. She will have all the materials you will need. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Winkler, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 856-520-7103.
