Update: More prayer vigils took place last weekend

Even more communities held prayer vigils last weekend as part of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition's campaign "Prayer, Renewal, and Action on Immigration." They called for the protection of immigrants, empowerment of the faith community, and moral courage for Congress to take action on immigration reform.

These vigils attracted significant media attention which I've added to my prior post on the prayer vigils here. I especially encourage you all to check out the TV clips, as they demonstrate the hope and determination of people of faith to overcome racism and xenophobia in their communities and our country.
