On Sept. 20th organizers in Roanoke, VA held an event called “Ask Me Anything” It was a public event aiming to help encourage tolerance, openness and diversity in the community. They wanted people from diverse backgrounds to participate so they could have peaceful dialogue and work past fear. Volunteers  held up signs representing their communities and inviting dialogue with the public. Some examples were: I am an immigrant. I am a refugee. I am gay. I am transgender. I am a Muslim. I am Jewish. I am Christian. I am a veteran. I am an atheist. 

On Sept. 18th organizers also held an event called “The Miracle of Nonviolence: from the Personal to the Planetary”.  25 people attended this kick-off event for Peace Week Roanoke–which included a potluck followed by presentation and sing-a-long led by Ralph Hutchison, Coordinator of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance.
