KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Religious leaders in Kalamazoo County are teaming up to urge peace following next week’s presidential election.
In a Tuesday news release, clergy members said they’re coming together “out of concern over talk by some individuals of negative actions following our national election.”
They plan to hold a news conference Thursday to collectively sign a letter supporting peace following the Nov. 8 election.
Clergy members are also teaming up for a public interfaith service to pray for peace the night after the election. The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, located at 247 W. Lovell Street in Kalamazoo.
The church says parking is free and there will be a staffed nursery for families. The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety is expected to patrol the event to ensure it’s safe.
