A Hate-Free Peace Vigil has been organized for Sunday (August 20th) at Confederation Square in response to President Trump’s rhetoric.
The Facebook event page says this: "We need to build a society that is inclusive, not exclusive, not just for White people, but for everyone. In Peterborough, if we keep silent, if we don’t speak up, then unfortunately we could have groups forming like the White Supremacy groups in the States that is encouraging other people to join them in the brutality of hurting others."
The event is hosted and organized by Peterborough's Charmaine Magumbe, and includes the Community Race Relations Committee, Black Lives Matter and Peace Council Peterborough. It takes place starting at 6 p.m. at Confederation Park on Sunday.
