A coalition of local advocacy groups are hosting an event on Sunday to show support for Ukraine as the country fights the Russian army.

Starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Esther Short Park, the hourlong event is meant for supporters “to express their concern for the suffering of the people of Ukraine. … Some will bring signs and symbols of peace to hold along the streets. Others may gather to share prayers and reflection,” according to a news release.
