Grafton – The Unitarian Universalist Society of Grafton and Upton will be holding a Candlelight Vigil to be held in solidarity with the victims of the Orlando mass shootings and the LGBTQ community Wednesday, June 15 at 9 p.m. at the Grafton Common.
“In the aftermath of one of the deadliest mass shootings attacks in history, UUSGU want to create a space where people from diverse faiths, religions, racial/ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations can come together to mourn and promote solidarity for the victims and everyone who is negatively impacted by these hate crimes,” organizers said in a press release.
“The event is a call for love. We hope that our unity in prayer can send a strong message of compassion and a call to end all hate crimes in our communities,” said Donna Cameron, social justice committee and UUSGU member.
The public is invited to attend this event.
