GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER

The George Floyd Global Memorial and the community at George Floyd Square invite individuals and faith communities throughout the world to join in an interfaith Day of Prayer for Justice for George Floyd and Black Liberation on March 8th, 2021. The community will gather in- person at George Floyd Square beginning at 8am CST for a socially-distanced day of prayers and petitions from faith leaders and community members throughout the day, and will culminate in a candlelight vigil at 6pm CST.

Portions of the day’s events will be live streamed for supporters around the world to offer prayers for Justice for George Floyd and for Black Liberation, in their own ways and through their own faith traditions, as an act of love and solidarity. Information for how to participate virtually will be updated periodically. Check back often for updates.
