Campaign Nonviolence Chicago will march to Federal Plaza on Wednesday, September 24 to connect the dots between violence/war, poverty/economic injustice, and climate change — and to envision nonviolent alternatives toward building a culture of peace.

The march will assemble at Old Saint Pat’s Catholic Church at 3 p.m.  (700 W. Adams St., Chicago).  After arriving at Federal Plaza (219 South Dearborn) the rally will feature speakers, music, street theater and a public reading of the Pledge of Nonviolence.  Legislative “asks” will be taken to the offices of U.S. Senators Dick Durban and Mark Kirk. After concluding the rally, the group is invited to reassemble at at Old St. Pat’s for a 7 p.m. presentation by Campaign Nonviolence’s Kit Evans-Ford.
