National Day of Mourning and Lament

Last week the United States surpassed the grim mark of 100,000 deaths due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this moment, faith leaders from around the country have joined Sojourners in calling on people from all faith traditions to take the time to lament the loss of our brothers and sisters. Our nation needs time and space to truly lament the loss of our loved ones taken from us by the COVID-19 pandemic — and the pandemic within the pandemic: the loss of black lives due to police brutality.

On Monday, June 1, we are calling for interfaith leaders to partner with their mayors and other local elected officials to hold virtual prayer services and mark the passing of the 100,000.

Join the virtual prayer service today at 12 p.m. EST.
