Walk in Solidarity This Sunday for Hostages Held 100 Days

Sunday, January 14th, marks the 100th day since 240 hostages were kidnapped from Israel and taken to Gaza. Over 130 of them, some of whom are American citizens, still remain captive there. The local Boulder chapter of Run For Their Lives (part of the larger Bring Them Home Now initiative) has been walking in downtown Boulder every week. There are multiple groups like ours meeting internationally and across US cities (including a local Denver chapter).

Our group meets at 1 pm on the corner of Pearl & 8th and walks the length of the Pearl Street Mall and back, stopping at the courthouse for a brief video that the leads of Run For Their Lives include in their weekly recap. The goal is to share the message far and wide (specifically via social media) that the hostages have not been forgotten. This is not a protest; it is a peaceful walk to show solidarity with the hostages and their families, and a plea for their release.

Local leaders have been invited to join us, as have local clergy. Our group currently has over 155 members.

When: Sunday, January 14th at 1 pm
