Livingston For Love Rally

Date: 
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

We, in Livingston County, believe in love. We believe in the power of love to create strong beautiful communities, deepen human connection across differences, and conquer the forces of fear and hatred. This week has seen fear and hatred exemplified in the actions of those who marched with symbols and words that proclaimed that one race was superior to another, that some human lives did not have as much worth as others. We’ve seen this before in Livingston County.
