A Stand up for Social Justice Vigil is happening Tuesday November 14, outside the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts. It’s scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.
Stand up for Social Justice is a grassroots non-partisan coalition supported by Not in Our Town, the YWCA of Bloomington-Normal, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington-Normal, New Covenant Community, and the ACLU of Central Illinois.
This week’s event is part of a series of monthly vigils held on the second Tuesday of each month.
The group says this month’s vigil is to protest what they call the power of big money in tax reform and gun safety issues. They say it will also serve as a time to honor the victims of the Texas church shooting massacre.
