CANCELLED: Nonviolence Day in the Park No.16 @ Victoria Park Island
Sep 26 all-day

We regret announcing that our 16th Nonviolence Day in the Park will be cancelled. We felt that there is too much uncertainty in the coming weeks and months.
WR Nonviolence continues to meet virtually every Tuesday to plan our way forward. Contact us if you’d like to join the discussion – how can we communicate the importance of nonviolence during our current pandemic?

We continue to celebrate the many positive community initiatives – safely, following the guidelines provided by Region of Waterloo Public Health.

The day features community group displays, vendors, music, and activities for children.
