EVENT DETAILS

Vigil to End Violence
General Notices
Honor victims & work toward peace

When:
Cost: Meet on State Street side
Call: 608-469-6686

More Information:
The Vigil to End Violence is a monthly gathering to honor victims of violence and to celebrate and work toward peace in our nation and world. The first vigil was held to honor those killed at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin in August 2012. It is now a monthly gathering.
The gathering is intended as a way to honor those lost to violence and to put out positive energy toward the idea of ending violence in the world. It is not intended to be a political gathering, but a place where we can connect as community with our emotions and our spirituality around the idea of peace. It is about focusing our energies on ending violence in all its manifestations.

We gather with candles or other light (if you bring candles the Capitol police will ask you to put them out if they are not in a cup or something that will prevent wax from dripping).
We meet on the third Sunday of every month on the State Street side of the Capitol (corner of State, Mifflin, and Carroll Streets) from 6:00 p.m. for about an hour. There is no cost.
For more information contact Callen Harty at 608-469-6686.
