Washington, DC Candlelight Vigil

With so many impacted families traveling to Washington, DC in September, we wanted to take advantage of the impactful beauty of a candlelight vigil in front of the nation‘s capital. Please join us! We will have a discussion and a call to action from our Founder, Susan Ousterman, immediately after.

While registration is not required to attend, it helps us and ensure accuracy in permitting and that we have a candle for everyone. You can do so by clicking here. We look forward to being in community with many vilomahs, which often feels like home.

If you would like to stay and chat, and have access to one, please consider bringing a chair or blanket.
