Mourning Into Unity Peace Vigil - Atlanta, Georgia
Mourning Into Unity offers a path for Americans to come together to acknowledge the loss, fear, separation and anxiety that we are experiencing personally and as a nation. By participating in interfaith vigils, we affirm our shared humanity and strengthen our commitment to each other and to our democracy.

Paige Alexander - CEO, The Carter Center

REV. ED BACON, St. Luke's, Atlanta
"When all of us are sad, tense, feeling our losses, that's a message that we need to stop. We need to pause and give ourselves time and space to grieve. It is an act of sanity for civilization. We must do it."
RABBI SYDNEY MINTZ. Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco
"I feel that today more than ever, we are a broken nation in a broken world, and it is up to each one of us as individuals, whether you believe in a god or no God, to come together and bring us back in a healing way to unity and wholeness."
