Dear Friends:

 

I invite you to join me along with faith leaders for Together in Prayer:One Community United in Faith, a vigil to unite people from across the First Congressional District around a common purpose of healing and understanding.  The prayer vigil will be held on Tuesday, June 30th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at the , 301 NE Main Street, Rocky Mount, N.C.

 

My heart is saddened for the families who have lost loved ones in the tragic murders at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and for their community.  I will be traveling to the funeral for Senior Pastor Reverend Clementa Pinckney to represent the First District and the Congressional Black Caucus.

 

Our nation is suffering through a difficult time, and we can only begin to truly heal our communities by coming together to address the larger issues of bigotry and racial injustice that sadly continue in our country.

 

I ask that you join faith leaders, your church family, friends and neighbors in prayer for the victims’ families and for all of us in eastern North Carolina to unite around a common purpose of repairing the damage to our communities.
