48 hours before the run-off election, a chance to mitigate violence and promote peace and unity 

Atlanta, Georgia - On Sunday, January 3, at 6:00 PM, faith leaders, health care workers, and community leaders will gather outside the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta for a pre-election candlelight vigil of mourning and unity. Led by Rev. Ed Bacon of St. Luke’s, more than 50 Interfaith, healthcare, civic, business, law enforcement, veterans and youth will celebrate a brief liturgy followed by a procession with a live violin performance. The vigil offers a path to preclude the rising tide of violence we see across the country. 

Leaders attending include Paige Alexander, CEO of The Carter Center, former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Executive Director of the Islamic Speakers Bureau Atlanta Soumaya Khalifa, and Jewish Federation CEO Eric Robbins, among others.

After a year where Georgia has experienced a close election marked by threats of violence, and a year in which more than 10,000 Georgians were among the more than 200,000 Americans lost to COVID, these leaders are coming together to unite in restoring America’s democracy through time-tested traditions and to begin to repair our sense of unity. 

Atlanta’s National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a living monument to justice and dignity for all, that inspires visitors with immersive exhibitions, dynamic events and conversations, and engagement and education/training programs. 

The Rev. Ed Bacon, Interim Rector at Atlanta’s St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, will lead the liturgy. Bacon was ordained in 1983 and his ministry led him to become a national voice on issues of faith and justice. 

Sunday’s vigil will be held outdoors, with participants masked and socially distanced or attending online.
