Religious leaders come together for vigil, conversation after New Zealand attacks

MADISON (WKOW) — Local religious leaders came together Sunday to put an end to white supremacy.

A large crowd gathered for a program Sunday afternoon at the Madison Central Public Library.

They started with a vigil for the lives lost in a mass shooting at two mosques in New Zealand.

The organizers hope to find ways to fight white supremacy through interfaith solidarity.

“We can not do this every group by itself. The Jews cannot do this by themselves. The Muslims cannot do this by themselves, the Sikh cannot do this by themselves and so it has to be a collective, a collaborative effort. We need to get together, we need to sit together, we need to talk to each other,” said Imam Ibrahim Saeed, president of the board of directors for the Islamic Center in Madison.

Christian, Jewish, Sikh and Muslim leaders all attended this event on Sunday.
