Worldwide tragedy can happen when we least expect. It can impact us in many ways, sometimes leaving people feeling stunned, shocked, and unable to cope. Knowing what to say and expressing how we feel is not always easy. People tend to wonder how they can help, and how they can connect with others in times of tragedy.
The OPA Committee on Social Responsibility will hold virtual memorials in times of worldwide tragedy for people to connect with others, and express themselves in ways that they feel supported and comfortable.
The Virtual Memorials will be planned and hosted based on situations that occur in the world and community, during an hour that is hopefully convenient for most.
To participate in a Virtual Memorial, please select from the list below:
Gun Violence in Dayton, El Paso and Gilroy - August 2019
Ohio Heartbeat Bill (HB 258) - June 2019
