Join your friends and neighbors for the Rogers Park Community Peace Walk & Dedication on the UN International Day of Peace!

At 6 pm, Wednesday, Sept. 21, we will meet at the United Church of Rogers Park Peace Pole, 1545 W. Morse Ave., walk north on Ashland Avenue to the Willye B. White Community Center at 1610 W. Howard St., walk one more block north on Marshfield Avenue and then west on Jonquil Terrace to Hermitage. We will end the walk at the newly installed peace pole in Triangle Park, where a brief dedication ceremony
and calls
for peace will be delivered.

Everyone is welcome. Here's the program:

• Re-dedicate United Church of Rogers Park Peace Pole, led by Rev. Catiana McKay.
• Walk for Peace (See map for route info.),
 which will include a brief stop at
the Willye B. White Community Center.
• Brief dedication ceremony for new Triangle Park Peace Pole, led by Triangle Park Advisory Council President Stephanie Gillespie Schrock.
• Call for peace in the community, led by special guest Tio Hardiman, CeaseFire Illinois director featured in the award-winning documentary film "The Interrupters."

Candles and refreshments will be provided
 at the end of the walk.

Volunteers are needed to help organize this event, which is being hosted by the Triangle Park Advisory Council and United Church of Rogers Park. Contact Stephanie at
to learn about ways you can get involved.

We look forward to walking with our neighbors on International Peace Day as we renew our commitment to peace in our community--and in the world.
