This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

On Sunday, April 21, 2019, as worshipers of the Christian faith celebrated Easter, terror struck in churches and hotels in Sri Lanka. According to media reports, 290 lives were lost and at least 500 individuals were injured. Places of worship and wherever people gather in communities should be safe from violence and free of hatred and fear.

The Syracuse University community mourns the lives senselessly lost and sends strength and support to those grappling with what happened to friends, family and loved ones.

All are welcome to collectively remember those killed and injured in Sri Lanka, to be in solidarity with their loved ones, and to embody a spirit of cooperation and compassion.
