Local faith communities sponsor event to say ‘Never Again’


A multifaith, multidenominational vigil in solidarity against recent acts of hate will take place at the Holocaust Memorial on The River Walk, just off South Main Street, in Providence, on March 5 at 3 p.m. Organizers hope for “a massive show of strength” from the faith community.

At press time, the event, called “Never Again Means Never Again,” was gathering interest on Facebook. Organizers are Abraham’s Tent, A Hope (Americans Helping Others ProspEr), Islamic School of Rhode Island, Rhode Island Council for Muslim Advancement, the Sisterhood of Salam Shalom, More than my Religion, MAE Organization for the Homeless, the Rhode Island State Council of Churches and the Interbelief Club of Wheeler.

“We are so grateful to the Muslim community and our other interfaith partners for their support in this dark moment,” said Rabbi Sarah Mack, president of the Board of Rabbis of Greater Rhode Island.
