Carbondale participates in campaign nonviolence

An illuminated neon peace sign shows through some wispy fields.

The Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois is sponsoring a Vigil for the International Day of Peace.

Participants will gather to honor Carbondale as one of the first "Nonviolent Cities" inspired by Campaign Nonviolence.

This event is part of Campaign Nonviolence Action Days which takes place between September 21st and October 2nd. Tens of thousands will come together in the growing movement of peace and active nonviolence.

Organizers of the vigil say that people around the world are coming together in an effort to end the violence that plagues our communities. They hope this event is an opportunity to push back against the culture of violence.

Participants will gather on September 21st at 5pm at the International Peace Pole, located in Carbondale's Friendship Plaza at the corner of South Illinois Avenue and Mill Street.
