Celebrate PeaceDay Indianapolis

Approximately 25 people gathered to celebrate the International Day of Peace at the Rivoli Park Labyrinth on Wednesday, September 21st in Indianapolis, IN.  We started the event with outdoor yoga led by Alicia Oskay.  Then we made #peaceday posters to carry during our peace walk.  We walked through the Rivoli Park Neighborhood with officers from the Sheriff’s Department and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.  On the walk, we saw the community murals that were painted in 2014 and 2015. We received encouraging honks for our peace signs as we walked.  After the walk, everyone that was gathered enjoyed a light meal of soup that was provided for the participants.  Throughout the evening, people walked the Rivoli Park Labyrinth for peace.  A photo essay was published in the Indianapolis Star newspaper online version about the event-http://www.indystar.com/picture-gallery/life/2016/09/21/east-side-community-celebrates-international-day-of-peace/90809242/ (photos by Michelle Pemberton) .  And a blog post was written by Shawndra Miller (https://shawndramiller.com/2016/09/27/on-peace-day/) that was reblogged at www.rplabyrinth.blogspot.com.
