Candlelight Vigil to be held for Orlando at 69th Street Pier tonight

To show unwavering support for Orlando in the wake of the mass shooting that left 49 people dead at a gay nightclub last week, the Community of All Faith is holding a “Pray for Orlando” Candlelight Vigil at the 69th Street Pier tonight.

“This is all people of different faiths coming together to put a voice against violence,” said Mindi Schwartz, one of the vigil’s organizers alongside Katherine Khatari, Marylou Martinez and Franci Schwartz. “The community of Bay Ridge [will stand] in memory of the lives lost and honor the innocent victims.”

The vigil will be held on Friday, June 17 at the 69th Street Pier from 9 to 10 p.m.
