Friday: City to Host Stronger Than Hate Event at Point State Park

Join Mayor William Peduto and the City of Pittsburgh for Stronger Than Hate: A Gathering of Compassion, Unity, & Love, a public event taking place this Friday, Nov. 9, at Point State Park fountain to honor victims of the Tree of Life shooting, and to call for peace and unity among all.

The noon event will begin with a one-minute moment of silence for peace and the 11 victims. Those unable to make the event — from those in Pittsburgh to others around the world — are invited to have their own moments of silence at noon EST that day.

Details about the event are available online.
