Campaign Nonviolence Birmingham, Alabama

Posted by Ryan Hall

Birmingham, Alabama held a “Stand for Peace” vigil on September 27

The vigil was at Five Points South, a restaurant & recreational area in Birmingham. About 30 people came, many of them new to their vigils. ¬†They had people from JustFaith communities, from the Birmingham Peace Project, Mary’s House CW, Beloved Community Church, the Friends’ Meeting, and some who are attending a class on nonviolence at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. They had quite a few honks and waves and some folks stopped to talk with us. They hope some of the new folks will return for their weekly vigil.
