Event Details

Prayer Vigil for Racial Justice in Memory of George Floyd
Saturday May 22 |  4pm | Palo Alto City Hall

As followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that we must stand together in unity and in prayer against racial injustice and xenophobia in our land. In the past year, the horrific murder of our brother George Floyd brought an awakening to the Church and to believers across denominations, ethnicities and Christian communities. The surge in Asian hate crimes further made clear that together we must continue to fight and pray against division and violence. As we approach the 1 year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, we respond to the Holy Spirit’s invitation to lament, confess, and intercede for racial justice and safety for all people in the Silicon Valley and in our country.
