Pilgrimage for Justice and Peace
We march in Greensboro during Holy Week calling for
END TO WAR
that is killing our soldiers and Afghan civilians;
HALT TO NEW JAILS
and their funding and building instead of new schools; and
JUSTICE FOR IMMIGRANTS
and their families facing separation due to unjust detention and deportation!
Join various community organizations and people on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 for the 23rd annual Pilgrimage for Justice and Peace! We will be marching in Greensboro during the Holy Week calling for an end to war, a halt to new jails, and justice for immigrants. The day will begin at Guilford College and end at St Mary's Catholic Church. Please join us!
