On January 5, 2023, we were humbled and honored to have 70 people attend our Faith in Democracy Interfaith Vigil in person and more than 350 view it online that evening. It had a peaceful, prayerful tone with a focus on unity and hope drawing a broad audience spanning different faith traditions and political perspectives.
The events of January 6, 2021 continue to divide Americans and create concern about the health of our democracy as well as our ability to resolve political differences without violence. We hope you found value in our gathering and a space to reflect on the worth of our democracy to pray for peace and unity.
If you missed any portion of the event or would like to watch it again, the recording is viewable below.
