In light of more damaging news about State Rep. Matt Shea — this time about him seeking to run surveillence on left-wing activists — faith leaders are planning to gather outside Spokane Valley City Hall Tuesday to sing, pray and try to repair the image of Spokane Valley.

“We will have citizens speak to the issue of damage done to the character of our area. This is a time of sharing experiences and concerns,” an announcement reads.

The event, organized by Faith Leaders and Leaders of Consciousness, will include faith and non-faith speakers who will address the, “moral need to heal our reputation” and also speak against extremism

The vigil is designed to encourage City Council members.

” This is hard work and it will take our leaders and citizens working together to heal the continued damage to our reputation,” the announcement read.

The vigil will be at 5 p.m. at Spokane Valley City Hall, 11707 E Sprague Ave, Spokane Valley and will end at 6 p.m. so attendees can attend the City Council meeting, which several community members are planning to speak.
