Mark this Day for Peace, Justice and Inclusion
Let us join to affirm our common humanity and shared commitment to a world of peace, justice and inclusion. Prayers, reflections, music and rituals from diverse religious traditions will call us to unity and compassion as we make a public witness for peace. Those of all faiths and of no formal faith are more than welcome.
At 5:30-7pm there will be a Multifaith Peace Picnic, also on King Plaza, sponsored by American Muslim Voice along with many other organizations including MVPJ. Come for that and have more opportunity to cultivate community and friendship. Our Peaceful Presence Gathering will immediately follow the picnic.
