Can you feel it?
We are so appreciative of the time, energy, support and love you have put into this initiative. This definitely would not be happening if not for each and everyone of you. The fact that hundreds of individual/organizations have put together this beautiful quilt of activities that educate, entertain, and spark a commitment so #wecanwagepeace is incredible. From all of our collaborators who put together events, to the venues who offered free space to businesses who covered the cost of workshops, to artists who created and entertained all in the name of peace. Minnesota — you rock!!!
Please send us your videos from your events asap so we can publish them on the web. We will weave them together into a video that will be played before the “Let It Begin With Me” Concert on Saturday, September 29th at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church, Mpls. The concert will premiere a new song written by Aane Fosse, expressly for “10 Days Free From Violence” and will be performed by the Aane Fosse’s 4 Peace Band featuring Patricia Lacy.
Please remember to have participants “sign up” on the TCNV poster boards, which can still be picked up at FNVW, Central Midway Building Room 307, 393 North Dunlap Street, St. Paul, MN (It is west of Lexington Ave. Take the frontage road on the north side of I-94 (St. Anthony Ave.) turn right on Griggs-the first right you can take and you will see Central Midway to your right). Call ahead as there is not always someone in the office. 651-917-0383 The boards can be returned there or bring them to the closing ceremony: The Ripple Effect at St Catherine University, Jeanne D’arc Auditorium, Whitby Hall, 2004 Randolph Avenue, St Paul 55105.
