Mourning Into Unity: Detroit, MI

Mourning Into Unity: Detroit, MI
Join us at Greater New Mount Moriah Baptist Church 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.

During the October 19th vigil, the Washington, DC host community, the Church of the Epiphany, will process to the White House with a length of purple fabric representing the total number of US Covid deaths as of mid-October. You can join a vigil in your community, either at the host vigil site in your community or online, 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.
