Charleston Memorial

We gathered one year after the racial violence at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. We gathered to remember the victims and to come together in solidarity in prayer and song, standing up against racial violence in all our churches, schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. The memorial service was supported by CARE Rockbridge in addition to local churches.
