National Center for Civil and Human Rights – we will gather on the plaza at the corner of Ivan Allen Boulevard and Centennial Olympic Park Drive downtown.
Bring a candle (battery-operated, preferably) and join in singing, prayer, poetry and a libation ceremony for peace.
“The people of the world have asked us to shine a light on a future of promise and opportunity. Member States have responded with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development… It is an agenda for people, to end poverty in all its forms. An agenda for the planet, our common home. An agenda for shared prosperity, peace and partnership.” — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
