Global Day of Action - Candlelight Vigil & Rally for Ebola Victims

Ebola has now reached over 7,000 cases in West Africa, and ~3,300 deaths - these numbers are rising. Join the PIH Engage Fort Collins team, as we give pause to remember all those who have fallen ill from and/or died from this disease. We will light candles for the victims of Ebola and bring awareness to the community of how serious and devastating this outbreak has been. We will hold stakes with pictures of those who have been infected or affected by this virus, and share some of their stories. There will also be a song or two sung in honor of those who have suffered as well as those who have been working hard to end this epidemic.

There will be pamphlets that explain more about the disease and extra candles for any community members who pass by and decide to join for even just a few minutes.

 

There are over 50 countries around the world celebrating the Global Day of Action! Please join us and bring any and all interested in coming together in action.

    Cya all tomorrow in the square at 6:45! We really want to make an effect so please do your best to show up by 7. Bring a poster or picture if you have and be prepared to take turns speaking. I'll have extra paint sticks to tack on pictures and we'll have candles/glow sticks. Never done something like this before so it'll be new for all of us! Cya then!
