On Thursday December 10th 2015, 6:30pm, at the Austin State Capitol , join us in UNITY and PEACE for a vigil to remember and honor those lost in the recent Planned Parenthood shootings and those effected by violence all around the world.
We stand together against attacks in our communities and honor those who lost there lives. And we #StandWithPP
>Bring candles. Bring peaceful signs in support and/or remembrance. Bring donations for PP. Bring smiles. Bring love. Bring openness. Bring light. Bring strength. And be prepared to join together in prayer, song, silence, and unity.< One of the lessons of the tragedy in Colorado is that words matter, and hateful rhetoric fuels violence. We are calling for an end to the inflammatory rhetoric that has vilified and fueled attacks against not only Planned Parenthood and reproductive health providers, but also the black community, immigrants, refugees, and the transgender community. WE STAND UNITED. We stand together against attacks in our communities and honor those who lost there lives. And we #StandWithPP Join and invite your friends to show your support for access to safe reproductive health care for Women AND Men. Join to show you support for UNITY and PEACE. Join to show your support for a healthy and happy life. Join for LOVE! We stand together against attacks in our communities and honor those who lost there lives.
