Moments of Peace: Coming Together on Election Night

November 3 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Wyoming Rising is passing along this message from the national Braver Angels communications team. Wyoming Rising is not sponsoring or hosting these events.

Want to do something for yourself and your country during election week?

You’re invited to two special events that Braver Angels is hosting during an important and fragile week for our country.

Join us on Election Night for Moments of Peace: Coming Together on Election Night. We will have 15-minute Zoom gatherings, secular and religious, from 7:00 pm to 2:00 am EST on Tuesday, November 3.

No matter what happens on Election Night, we will host an array of religious and secular 15-minute gatherings, led by a remarkable group of leaders—from Baptist pastors to Jewish rabbis to Catholic priests to imams, from civic leaders to politicians to ordinary citizens, and many more.

Each gathering will represent the traditions and style (secular or religious) of the presiding leader, creating a rich tapestry of gatherings that reflect America. Gatherings may include readings, stories, a reflection, songs, silence, and in the case of religious gatherings, prayers. But we won’t comment on what’s happening on Election Night. (That’s for the next night; see below.)

The goals are to offer comfort and grounding during a stressful evening, and to join with those who want to hold America together.

Register now for Moments of Peace: Coming Together on Election Night, and the day before the election we will release the full schedule of religious and secular gatherings.

After registering, you will receive two Zoom links—one for religious gatherings, and one for secular gatherings. You will then be free to join any gathering (religious or secular) at any time during the night—as often as you need or feel moved.
