Along with the various justice events that emerge from the ‘signs of the times’ that we plan with partner coalitions, 8th Day has sponsored the following events each year:
Tuesday Morning Peace Vigil – Since September 11, 2001, the 8th Day staff has gathered each Tuesday morning calling on the United States to use nonviolent means as addressing international conflict. The group gathers at Federal Plaza in downtown Chicago at 8am each Tuesday.
Lunch & Learn – Monthly discussions at the 8th Day office featuring speakers who are engaged in various issues of peace and justice. Past speakers include Bill Ayers, Kathy Kelly, Prexy Nesbitt, and Malalai Joya.
The Conscience Monologues – A play written by 8th Day staff about women’s experiences of conscience in the Catholic Church.
Good Friday Walk for Justice in Chicago – A modern-day Way of the Cross that links the traditional stations with current issues of injustice in our communities, country, and world.
Revel in the Revolution – Our annual celebration of 8th Day’s work, partners, and supporters.
