Charlotte, NC - Members of Charlotte’s Muslim community made their voices heard Friday night.
Following the mass shooting in California they wanted to spread the word that the actions of the shooters don’t represent the entire religion.
"What some people do that just happen to be Muslim does not represent my faith,” said Rose Hamid of Charlotte.
Organizers said what happened in San Bernardino was a violation of Islam’s fundamental beliefs.
"We felt that it was important for us to stand up and say enough is enough,” said Keith Stringfellow, Youth Director of the Muslim American Society.
The idea moving forward is for organizers to hold more of these types of community events in the future.
There was also a moment of silence Friday night for every victim of the attacks.
More than 100 people attended the event.
The vigil was hosted on the UNC Charlotte campus.
