Vigil for Nex Benedict

February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Recently, a tragic event took the life of 16-year-old Nex Benedict, a nonbinary youth from Oklahoma, who was brutally assaulted in a high school bathroom at Owasso High School. Nex succumbed to their injuries and passed away the following day, leaving the community and the nation in mourning. This senseless act of violence is not only a profound loss but a stark reminder of the dangers that hate and intolerance pose to our LGBTQ+ youth.
Further compounding this tragedy is the involvement of the “Libs of TikTok” account (run by Chaya Raichik), which had targeted Owasso High School prior to this incident. The account’s far-right and anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric has contributed to a climate of hostility and fear, underscoring the urgent need for us to stand in solidarity and advocate for a world where love and acceptance prevail over hate.
In response to this heart-wrenching event, we are organizing a vigil this Sunday evening at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church to honor Nex’s memory, offer support to those grieving, and take a stand against the far-right narrative that seeks to divide us.
Together, we can send a message of love, hope, and unity. If you are able, we invite you to join in this solemn occasion, to comfort one another, and to reaffirm our dedication to a future where every individual can live authentically and free from fear.
