Ending Violence Together rally held in Bangor Saturday

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Ending Violence Together, that's one message the Bangor Peace and Justice Center hopes to spread Saturday.

More than 30 local organizations and faith communities are teaming up for the 5th annual End Violence Together Rally.

It's part of National Campaign Nonviolence Week leading up to the International Day of Peace on September 21st.

The goals are to educate the community, unite people and raise awareness.

Casey Faulkingham, Partners For Peace said, "What we find is there are interconnections with the work that's being done in our community to end poverty and homelessness and racial injustice and it's all connected and we all must work together in order to accomplish our goal.”

It runs from 1 to 4 in West Market Square.
