This area of town is very busy all the time, but more so on Friday afternoon. Our focus is Stop the War! We have signs but feel free to bring your own. Please keep in mind our focus and the fact that we are a nonprofit and are non partisan group. It is problematic to our nonprofit status to support or not support one candidate over another.
