Border of Lights
Virtual Vigil

October 5, 2013
8 - 10 pm

We're doing Border of Lights again, October 4-6, 2013 in Dajabón, DR, and Quanaminthe, Haiti. This year, because of increased tensions between the two countries, we have not been able to procure the permits to gather at the border and have been discouraged from any large group gathering. We will still be holding a service and a small group of us will stand at the border in solidarity. Instead we are asking supporters to join us for an online vigil, October 5, Saturday, from 8-10 pm (EST). This is a way that those who cannot be physically on the ground with us can "join" us online. We hope the vigil goes viral and global, as this will send a powerful message to both countries that there is a community out there supporting change, peace, harmony between both countries.
