Kalamazoo, Michigan – Kalamazoo plans to illuminate the town hall with blue and yellow lights in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.
These colors represent the flag of the country.
A symbolic demonstration of support began today at sunset.
Commissioner Chris Pradel says last weekend he sent an email to other leaders with the idea.
He hopes that the people in Kalamazoo affected by the conflict know that their community supports them.
“I want everyone to feel that Kalamazoo can be their home and the place they love. I would imagine that at a time when you have any ties to Ukraine or even if you don’t, you have a lot in your head, a lot of fears and worries, just to know what place you call your thinking at home about you and your roots is a powerful tool. ” Said Chris Pradel, commissioner of the city of Kalamazoo.
