Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve: Yes, Olympia’s peace vigils occur as usual both Fridays!

Olympia’s weekly peace vigils occur all year around, regardless of holidays and regardless of weather!


We warmly (!) invite you to join us FRI DEC 24 and FRI DEC 31 (and every Friday) from 4:30 to 6:00 (or as much of that time as you can spare) at the SW corner of 4th & Water downtown (across the street south from the Kissing Statue).  (This is for 2021, and our vigils will continue every week in the future too.)

I’ll bring a good, varied selections of signs, or you may bring your own.  We support peace, human rights, nonviolence, the climate, abolishing nuclear weapons, positive encouragement for grassroots organizing, etc.  (No signs are rude or partisan.)

Our Wednesday noon-hour peace vigil also needs more participants every Wednesday (12 noon to 1 pm) at the NW corner of Sylvester Park at Legion & Capitol Way.  I always bring a good, varied selections of signs, or you may bring your own.

Thank you for literally “standing up for peace!”
