Crossroads

Festival Again Raises Visions of Peace

Article by Mike Murphy, AFSC KC Program Committee member

This year’s Visions of Peace at the Crossroads Festival was another rousing success. The Festival took place on June 7th, the first Friday of the month. First Friday is the time for the monthly art walk in The Crossroads District, and attendees of the Festival were a healthy mixture of peace activists and art enthusiasts who just happened upon the event.
