Together, interfaith leaders and mayors across the nation will call us to mourn, lament, and honor the dead, acknowledge the unequal nature of our suffering, pray together for the healing of the nation, and recommit to the difficult work ahead.

We’re asking members to complete a brief online survey to guage interest in convening a national Zoom conversation among formators.
