WEST HAVEN — Fighting fear and xenophobia through your public commitment to each other. This is a preemptive peace action, a public declaration that is vitally important during a time when fear misguides our citizens toward mistrust, hatred, and harm. It is our roll as spiritual leaders to show ourselves publicly, so that others, less sure of themselves, will not lose their way, will not succumb to fear, hatred, and harm, but will be drawn to goodness through our very public and common action together.
As members from various churches, mosques, and synagogues, both the religious and non-religious alike, we will enjoy a great Water Front Walk and show the world our appreciation and respect for diversity among God’s children. While walking, we will learn more about each other and we will donate all proceeds from the walk to the nonviolent action group: Combatants For Peace.
