Delano United Candlelight Vigil in Support of the Douglas Family Sunday, March 19

DELANO, MN – Delano United is an opportunity for the entire community to come together in support of the Douglas family, who were victims of racist vandalism and burglary, to express support for them through a candlelight vigil.

The public is invited to join community leaders from all aspects of the community at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 19, at Delano City Hall, to unite to show not just the Douglas family, but everyone, that this type of behavior will not be tolerated in Delano.

There will be a number of candles provided, but participants are encouraged to bring candles, if possible, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate.

Children are welcome to participate in the event using glow sticks as a safe way to shed their light on this issue and show support. Delano United is the first step in this journey and the entire community is encouraged to attend.

Visit the Delano United Candlelight Vigil in Support of the Douglas Family Facebook page for more information and to RSVP.
