Peace Vigils

Every Tuesday, 4:00 to 4:30 PM in front of Paul Ryan's constituent office, 20 South Main Street, Janesville Wisconsin, we vigil for peace.  We began this vigil in 2002 before the beginning of the Iraq war.  We have signs.  We need you to hold one. 

Also, every third Friday from 4:00 to 4:30 PM on Milton Avenue at the corner of Randolph Road in front of the post office in Janesville, we vigil for peace.  For more information click on Events Calendar on the left.
