Join us on August 14th in honor of International "Comfort Women" Memorial Day for a Candlelight Vigil in Thanks-Giving Square.

About this event

This vigil will be the last stop for the Peace and Justice Walk beginning at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum (300 N Houston St) and ending at Thanks-Giving Square (1627 Pacific Ave).

August 14th marks the day Kim Hak-sun, a former "Comfort Woman," first publicly testified in 1991 about Japan operating an organized military brothel system known as Comfort Station during WWII. Join Unforgotten Butterflies, our organization based in North Texas, to honor this important history of "Comfort Women" and all victims of human trafficking at a candlelight vigil following the peace and justice walk. The event will feature prayers from several different religious groups, poetry readings, diverse cultural performances, singing, speakers, and more!

We will have food and drinks as well as some giveaways to pre-registered attendees.

We encourage all to join us with your clubs, organizations, companies, churches, and campaigns with signs and banners. This will be a peaceful event honoring and remembering all "Comfort Women," and victims and survivors of human trafficking and sexual violence.

Join us to give voice to the victims and stand against all sexual violence!
