People of all ages from Windsor and the surrounding area are encouraged to come out to this unique event, being hosted by a local Amnesty International group.
At the vigil, Amnesty activists will be available to answer questions and provide information. Attendees are encouaged to bring a candle to light to remember all those who have suffered or are suffering due to HR violations. Amnesty International’s symbol, a candle wrapped in barbed wire, reminds all to keep the light shining on human rights. As usual, letters and petitions will be available to write and sign to encourage human rights. Non-perishable food itemswill also be collected to be donated to a local food bank.
