Chico Peace Vigil
Saturdays, rain or shine, at 3rd and Main, Chico; 12:30-1:30pm
The Chico Peace Vigil is tied to the very origin of the Chico Peace & Justice Center (CPJC).
While initially addressing the danger of nuclear proliferation and the arms race, the Peace Vigil has spoken against escalating militarism, has supported war tax resistance, has brought attention to poverty and hunger brought on by armed conflict, and to oppressive U.S. military intervention in other countries.
Sustaining the Peace Vigil is an enduring belief in the importance and power of non-violence, both as a moral value and as a tool to effect positive change.
The Chico Peace & Justice Center continues to build on the spirit of activism and nonviolence that Wilhelmina, Florence, and Helen planted so many years ago.
Join the Center and be a part of today's movement for peace and justice!
