A city group will launch the weekend with a public celebration of diversity and tolerance on Friday, Sept. 21 — officially designated by the United Nations as the International Day of Peace.

The Richmond Peace Education Center announced the event will take place 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Maggie Lena Walker Memorial Plaza at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown.

The event is called “Richmond Stands United: A Call to Solidarity” and will include live performances and speeches from community groups, with the aim of helping area residents connect with people and organizations working toward “liberation and justice,” according to Adria Scharf, the center’s executive director.
