A group of concerned Bristol residents have band together to form an evening of Unity and Solidarity today at 7pm.

The event was formed after Donald Trump won the Presidential election.

Since then, multiple protests across the country have formed.

“With the current climate in America we know that many people feel uncertain, fearful, and alone. We ask you to join us together, with members from our communities, to stand in unity and solidarity in hopes of finding peace and strength. Regardless of race, creed, color, faith, gender, disability, or sexuality we need to come together as neighbors and allies.”

The event will be held at the Memorial Boulevard school field.

The public is asked to bring candles and musician are encouraged to attend the event.

Parking is available at the school and street parking is also available behind the school on Willis Street.

Organizers ask for attendees to wear white or brightly colored shirts as it will be dark and we would like everyone to be visible for both safety and visibility.
