Justice, Solidarity, Nonviolence, & Love

Peace-Justice-Nonviolence Festival & Walk, Sept 11

Join us at the Peace-Justice-Nonviolence Festival & Walk, Sept 11 (Sunday), 2:30pm to dusk at Canalside! Our third annual. Will be even better than last year’s: interactive, inspiring, movement-building!!

We’ll have indigenous drumming and traditional opening thanks-giving; live music (featuring Ismail & Co, and others!); sharing thoughts/feelings/actions for the Peace-Justice-Nonviolence we so desperately need (just a word, phrase, or sentence); a peace walk; tabling; children’s activities; and more!

More than 100 groups have signed on as partner. Please do your part by coming and bringing your words and intentions to building the culture of justice, peace and nonviolence we so urgently need!
