The Library is proud to join the Canton Police Department and the Canton Response to Hate Crimes Coalition (CRHCC) at a Community Unity & Peace Rally on Saturday, September 26 from 6:30-9:30 PM in the Heritage Park Amphitheater located behind the library and the Township Administration Building. This community event will include activities such as: Solidarity Walk, Musical Entertainment, Guest Speakers, and a Community Discussion.
All ages are invited to attend this free event promoting inclusion and tolerance, which will celebrate Canton's pride and appreciation of its diverse population.
The rally is sponsored by the CRHCC, an award-winning coalition of local law enforcement, leaders and representatives of community organizations, faith-based organizations, public schools, and the community at-large who are committed to raising awareness of hate crimes, bias incidents, and bullying; offering support to victims of hate/bias/bullying; and restoring a sense of community when these incidents occur.
Library Director Eva Davis co-chairs the coalition along with Sgt. Dale Waltz of the Canton Police Department.
