People for Peace & Justice will participate in four Fremont events this summer! We hope you can stop by for a chat!
1. Juneteenth, June 25th: We’ll have a display table at Fremont NAACP’s Juneteenth event in Birchard Park, Saturday, June 25th, noon – 4:00 pm. We’ll be featuring several examples of banned books, providing an opportunity to discuss intellectual freedom and write postcards to our state legislators to oppose ‘divisive concepts’ bills being introduced in the Ohio General Assembly.
2. Pride Parade, July 9th: We’ll be walking in the parade, stepping off from Front and State at 11 am and heading to Rodger Young Park, where folks can cross the river for the Pride Festival in Walsh Park. If you’d like to join us, just look for our big blue “Peace Now, People for Peace and Justice” banner during parade lineup time.
3. Farmers Market, July 16th: We’ll be giving away tree saplings at our booth, highlighting the environment, climate change, and a more peaceful world. We would especially like to reach out to kids with an accompanying craft activity!
4. Sandusky County Fair Booth, Aug. 22- 28th. This is our 10th booth, if we can trust our archives! “Protect our Democracy” is our overall theme this year. We’ll make connections to intellectual freedom and honesty for Ohio education, climate change and the influence of fossil fuel money, and voting, of course! Come by to pick up a free fan, participate in a bit of art, sign a postcard, and have some good discussion!
