The #StrongerTogetherAZ Peace Vigil is a peaceful vigil that is the kick-off event for the Safety Pin Nation™ Movement in Arizona. The event will take place on the east side of Margaret T. Hance Park in Phoenix, AZ ((1202 N. 3rd St.) near the Phoenix Center for the Arts) on January 20th from 7pm to 9pm. We have permission from the park manager to hold this public assembly on the east side of the park. We are working with the Phoenix PD to help with parking and safety. This Peace Vigil is a way for like-minded individuals to gather together in solidarity, sing songs of peace and healing and share plans of positive community-based action. This is not a march. This event is not taking place at the capitol and is not affiliated with other events happening at the capitol on the same day. We will not have guest speakers on this inaugural event, instead, we will all be one collective voice in song.
