In the US, interfaith leaders urged the nation to recommit to protecting the rights of all religious believers. Christian, Jewish, and Muslim representatives held an interfaith prayer service at Washington National Cathedral. The service was co-sponsored by Shoulder-to-Shoulder, an interfaith group that fights discrimination against Muslims. Participants at the event specifically called on politicians and public officials to oppose bigotry, hate, and discrimination against people of all faiths.
