Public Invited: RBG Candlelight Vigil at Alexandria’s Market Square

ALEXANDRIA, VA – A local candlelight vigil honoring the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, September 28 at Market Square in the 300 block of King Street in Old Town Alexandria.
Spearheaded by local business leader, Kelly Grant, the event is open to all and is expected to attract residents of all ages, as well as civic and political pacesetters. “RGB was a champion of civil rights for women, gender bias and stood for justice, and I am thrilled to be joined by Councilwoman Amy Jackson and Gina White to put this together,” says Grant, who is also the driving force behind the new Alexandria Drive-In and is the Chief Operating Officer of ALX Community, a shared office workspace with two buildings in historic Alexandria.
“When Kelly Grant called me on the night Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, asking me to help with an event paying tribute to RBG, I jumped in with “YES” before she could even finish her sentence,” said Gina Rollo White, a mindfulness educator, and researcher. >
