People around the world have come out in support of Muslims in the face of hate following the deadly shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand that targeted 2 mosques, CNN reports.

What’s happening: Members of other faiths have been welcoming Muslims and those affected into their own places of worship, including St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, amid security concerns at mosques around the world. In New Zealand, the Jewish community will reportedly close its synagogues on the Sabbath for the first time as people have received warning to stay away from mosques in the aftermath of the deadly attack.

  • A UK-based forum for Christian-Muslim engagement has urged Christians to attend prayers at mosques instead.
  • Nearly $400,000 has been raised for the victims so far through the New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups.
  • People are hosting vigils and sending flowers directly to mosques.

Why it matters: Crafting reopening plans gave tech firms a chance to bolster their leadership and model the beginnings of a path back to normalcy for other office workers. Their decision to pause those plans is the latest sign that normalcy is likely to remain elusive in the U.S.
