After 20 years, the vigil will end on September 17

Mark your calendars,” as they say. “Save the date.”

We want to celebrate this milestone by inviting people in Kingston and beyond to stand with us for a final vigil. We’ll celebrate with song and stories, food and drink. Our last vigil takes place as a federal election campaign gets underway. So we’ll be making some new signs just for the occasion: “Vote to End Poverty.”
