Join AKIN and Bridge Refugee Services Wednesday, February 1 at 12:30 pm in Market Square as we support our immigrant, refugee, and Muslim brothers and sisters.

The vigil will begin at 12:30 pm on Market Square in Downtown Knoxville. We will observe silence until 1pm followed by a walk to the City County building where we will deliver a letter voicing our support for immigrants, refugees, and Muslims to the offices of Senator Bob Corker, Senator Lamar Alexander, and Representative John Duncan, Jr.
