Vigil Tree for Newtown, Connecticut

In remembrance of the victims of the tragedy in Connecticut, Supervisor Cortese’s office has partnered up with community leader Megan Williams, the Santa Clara County Office of Human Relations, the Office of Women’s Policy, the Human Relations Commission, American Muslim Voice Foundation, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Santa Clara Valley, the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, Center for Spiritual Enlightenment, Carry the Vision, and the Silicon Valley Interreligious Council to provide our community the opportunity to join together in honoring the victims of the Sandy Hook School shootings.

Community Vigil Tree:

A tree will be placed in the lobby of the County Government Center (70 W. Hedding St., San Jose) from December 20th-31st . We are asking community members to create paper ornaments in remembrance of the victims. We will provide the paper ornaments next to the tree where there will be pens for you to write and share your thoughts and well wishes and hang them on the tree.

Memorial Ceremony:

On Thursday, December 20th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, a brief memorial ceremony will be held in the East Wing of the County Government Center. We hope that you will join us in solidarity and spirit.
