Campaign Nonviolence Birmingham, Alabama

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.29.14

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.
