“Women of Faith - Voices Against Violence” are sponsoring a multimedia, multi-site event on Sunday, September 22, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., in Downtown Cleveland. The event is free and open to the public. At 3:00 p.m., an interfaith program in Old Stone Church, 91 Public Square (Ontario Street), will include music, dance, poetry, art, and testimonies, to promote nonviolence. Seating is available for 600 people, and some areas of the Church are accessible by elevator. After the program, a Peace Walk will be conducted around Public Square. The Walk will be highlighted by processional drumming, and participants are encouraged to carry signs in honor/memory of a woman whose life has been touched by violence. Activities are planned for guests who remain at the Church during the Walk. After the Walk, a reception will be held in the Church. Social Service resources will be available. Event-and-media contacts: lcarol.lewis@gmail.com and at a newly-planned Facebook Page. Volunteer opportunities: Lproschaska@ndc.edu. “Women of Faith - Voices Against Violence” are a coalition of women from the intercultural, interfaith communities of Northeast Ohio.
