Ferndale Community Response to Charlottesville One Year Later Aug.12

Ferndale, MI – Last year we gathered after the horror of Charlottesville to witness for diversity, inclusion, peace and justice; to pray and act; to mourn and work; to lament and remember. This year we again gather to work against white supremacy and oppression in all its forms, including the separation of families at the southern U.S. border, with a candlelight vigil and ribbon fence art installation.

Bring a ribbon or strip of cloth (we’ll also have strips available) with written words or unadorned, to add to the installation. A ribbon can be in remembrance or in honor or in power of others who have been affected by racism and xenophobia.

We’ll have the “Love is Bigger”banner from last year available to sign and publicly post our messages, as well.

Sunday Aug. 12 at 6pm at First United Methodist Church, 22231 Woodward, Ferndale.
