Interfaith March for Peace and Justice

April 29 @ 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Please join Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice on April 29 at 3:30 for our Interfaith March for Peace and Justice! This March, part of a nation-wide event, will celebrate the diversity and lift up the unity of our faith communities, as we affirm religious freedom and oppose all acts of violence and harassment against people based on race, color, beliefs, or place of origin. We gather at 3:15 at the Catholic Multicultural Center. Kick-off will be at 3:30 with a charge from local faith leaders. From there we will march in a circuit on South Park Street, ending back at the Catholic Multicultural Center for food, music, words of inspiration from community leaders, and a chance to meet new people and make connections! See http://interfaithmarch.com/ for information from the national organizers.

WHEN: April 29, 2018, gather at 3:15, kick-off at 3:30
