2022 Pilgrimage for Peace
Held on Sunday, April 24, consisted of over 90 peacemakers from across the state gathering (live and virtually) to mourn the violence in our community.
Representatives from numerous religious and social justice organizations walked from Heifer International across the Junction bridge to the Beacon for Peace and Hope where a Remembrance Service was held for all those who died at the hand of violence in Pulaski County over the past year. The names of victims were read, interspersed with readings, poems, and music around the theme of peace.
Funds were raised for the Center for Healing Hearts and Spirits to assist the families of those murdered in Central Arkansas. Ukrainian peace ribbons were also available for a donation to UNICEF that went to aid victims of violence in Ukraine.
