The New York Vigil For Peace will be held in Central Park on Saturday, March 19th. The different segments of the event will continue throughout the day. Much of the time will also be allotted for informal speeches, readings, music or art presentations, performance, spontaneous action, and informing the general public.
Participants will be able to come and go as their schedules permit without fear of missing the event.

Participants are encouraged to bring readings, prepared remarks, songs to share, liturgical passages, and any other appropriate performance or artistic expression -- such as dramatizations -- that will lend meaning to the event and support to the group.

The organizer hopes that we can provide ourselves and each other with a spiritually significant moment of joining in grief and hope. It is my prayer that this moment will empower us to go forward afterward, in faith and good conscience, to work for peace. We encourage participants to exchange contact information and interests in contributing to future efforts to build a community of good will among non-aligned, nonpartisan, nondenominational and unaffiliated participants.
