Interfaith Vigil of Remembrance and Solidarity

With Oak Creek and Joplin Tragedies

5:30pm, Thursday, August 9th

Start: University YMCA (1001 S. Wright St.)

Close:  Alma Mater Plaza (Green and Wright)


In Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a gunman opened fire at a Sikh gurdwara, killing 6 people and injuring 3 others during Sunday services. On Monday, a mosque in Joplin, Missouri was burned for a second time in two months.  This vigil is an attempt to bring together members of the Champaign-Urbana community to remember the victims of this violence and stand together in solidarity against acts of domestic terrorism and intolerance.  The vigil will begin at University YMCA (1001 S. Wright St.)  at 5:30pm and continue to Alma Mater space at Green and Wright concluding with a speak out and moment of silence. This event is co-sponsored by the Sikh Student Association, DiversityEd, Interfaith in Action, Baha’I Center, Asian American Cultural Center, La Casa Cultural Latina, Women’s Resources Center, and the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations.
