All are invited to honor those who have lost their lives and share their voice on these important issues. Families and students of all ages are encouraged to attend. The event features a variety of speakers from our local schools, including students and teachers.

The event is scheduled for 1-3 p.m,, starting at The Square in historic downtown Lenoir. Participants will march down Main Street and end at St. James Episcopal Church across the street from Davenport School. Speakers, including teachers, ministers, and students, will be featured both at the stage on The Square and on the lawn at Saint James Church across from Davenport Elementary School.

Caldwell Women Rise is a local non-partisan group started in 2017 who comes together to share concerns, listen and learn from each other, and support each other as we take action to make a positive difference in our county, our state, and our nation.
