A human rights vigil is set for 1-2 p.m. Monday (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day) in Little Falls. The vigil will be in Bank Square in downtown Little Falls. Bank Square is located at the intersection of Highway 27, First Street and Broadway Avenue. Signs are available for vigil participants.

The vigil will promote human rights and honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who dedicated his life to working for civil rights, peace, and economic justice.

The vigil will support the movement against police brutality, organizers said. The vigil will condemn human rights abuses, including those recently revealed by the Senate report on CIA torture, organizers said. The vigil will demand police officers who commit police brutality and U.S. government officials responsible for torture be held legally accountable, according to vigil organizers.

Following the vigil, there will be an informal discussion at Little Fiesta restaurant.

More information about the vigil may be obtained by calling Robin Hensel at 320-360-3931.
