Let us unite to honor the victims of 9/11, their families, and the first responders and strive to transform this tragic day into one of peace and community building.

We will also honor one of our own peacemakers, James P. McEntee, Sr., former Santa Clara County Director of the Office of Human Relations. He was a model of kindness and compassion, and left our community a wonderful legacy of advocacy for peace and social justice for all.

Let us walk on the path Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. paved for us. Together we can build a beloved, inclusive, and peaceful world.

FREE EVENT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

You will enjoy a Multi-faith Service, children's performances, light dinner, peace dove release, and a candlelight vigil.
