The 2022 Riverton Peace March and Rally will begin at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Riverton Centennial Park, 300 W. Adams Ave. The park is just down the street from the Center of Hope drug and alcohol rehabilitation center – where a white city employee shot two Northern Arapaho Tribal members in 2015. The first Riverton Peace March was held that year as a 'solemn and humble commemoration' for the shooting victims, Sonny Goggles and Stallone Trosper, organizer Ron Howard said. Since then, Howard said the annual event has 'evolved' into a 'rally of encouragement to continue our efforts of making our community safe and tolerant for everyone.
