Interfaith prayer service held at Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton

A Democratic New Jersey congresswoman held an interfaith prayer service at a Trenton church as a form of protest against the inauguration of Republican President Donald Trump.



Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman boycotted the ceremony in Washington Friday. She previously told News 12 New Jersey that she had doubts about Trump and his cabinet picks and also received complaints from her constituents.



Clergy representing Christian, Hindu and Muslim beliefs participated in the service. Many of the attendees say that they are questioning how the country moves on after having been so divided.



"It just makes me sick. I don't know that it's fear," says one woman who attended the service. "I still can't believe he got elected."



"How do we unite our country that represents not part of us, not just interest groups, but all of us?" asks another attendee.



Another protest event will be held in Trenton Saturday as the city hosts the state's largest March for Women protest event.
