This week’s Monday Vigil message: Vigil for Peace WK 1598 8.6.2018

Vigiling for Mother Earth

WHY vigil every Monday at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd & Doty Street in downtown Madison?

“We work on behalf of a peaceful, just world and seek a world where people and the planet are respected and valued. We ask you to think about each topic we write about, different each week. Some individuals here have been present on this corner for over 30 years to bring messages of peace, justice, and equality. Join us any Monday.”
