CONCORD (AP) — Several groups concerned about a rising tide of intolerance and violence conducted a silent vigil in front of the New Hampshire Statehouse during President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.
The Silent Vigil of Hope and Concern was scheduled to start at noon Friday.
The Rev. Gray Fitzgerald, of Concord, says the groups joined together to reaffirm their commitment to multiculturalism, human rights, the inclusion of all people, and an economic system that works for all.
The vigil was sponsored by the Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ NH Conference; the American Friends Service Committee; Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service; NH Peace Action; and the Equality Center.
