Join the Church of the Epiphany at Black Lives Matter Plaza to mourn and unite through a peaceful, candlelight vigil. United we make America whole.

Mourning Into Unity brings Americans together to grieve the deaths of the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and all our collective losses: unemployment, unsafe schools, unsafe workplaces, unsafe tomorrow. By peacefully gathering together, we defuse the rising tide of violence threatening our country. In the spaces of our mourning as a nation lies the nexus of our wholeness, oneness and health.

The October 19th vigil will take place in BLM Plaza. Following the vigil the Washington, DC host community, the Church of the Epiphany, will process from BLM Plaza to the White House with a length of purple fabric representing the total number of US COVID deaths as of mid-October. You can choose to join a vigil, either at the host vigil site in your community, or you can join the DC vigil online.

Following the vigil, join other members of your community in small, hosted online discussions. It’ll do you–and our country– a world of good because healing our nation begins with mourning–and unity follows.
