A peaceful anti-war rally and 9/11 commemoration event will be held at Scottsdale’s El Dorado Park on Saturday, Sept. 11.
The noon-3 p.m. event is hosted by the Arizona Libertarian Party and End the Damn Wars! organization.
“As we are coming to grips with the tumultuous exit of U.S. military forces from Afghanistan, the departure has raised long-term questions about U.S. foreign policy and America’s place in the world. We are honoring the memory of the nearly 3,000 who died 20 years ago on 9/11 by promoting peace and a foreign policy that avoids unnecessary intervention and instigation that could lead to another horrific attack,” said event host Lauren Snyder, 2nd Vice Chair and communications director of the AZ Libertarian Party.
Scheduled speakers include:
Additional supporters include Voter Choice AZ, and members of the Arizona Interfaith Movement and American Friends Service Committee.
Commemoration of lives lost on 9/11 and the 20-year “War on Terror” will be held.
