Covid-19 City Wide Vigil
July 17, 2:00-6:00pm, Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition is leading the efforts for a city-wide COVID-19 vigil in collaboration with the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, MICAH, Pastors United, the NAACP Milwaukee, and Wisconsin Council of Churches. The vigil will be held in Washington Park on Sunday, July 17th from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The vigil will be an opportunity for solidarity, unity, and resilience as we reflect on the effects this pandemic has had on our families and community.
The event will have the following: prayers, poetry, choirs, informational resources, commemoration tables, activities for families and children such as horseback riding and games, food trucks, and many local and state officials will be in attendance.
As the nation approaches 2.5 years of living in a pandemic, we have surpassed the grim national milestone of over 1 million lives lost to COVID, and nearly 15,000 people have died in Wisconsin. This pandemic has highlighted health and social inequities as well as reasons that some fellow citizens remain averse to vaccinations. Let's come together as one community as we look to a brighter future.
COVID-19 is real, the loved ones we have lost are a reality. If you have any questions please email MMWC.
