AYO! Midnight Medicine Walk

At midnight AYO! invites you will walk together, smudge, and sing from the Exchange District down to Main Street during their 5th annual Midnight Medicine Walk.

Walk founder and leader Lauren Chopek began the walk in 2013 to draw attention to the issue of sexual exploitation of young people.

Meet at The Cube/ Old Market Square and follow or connect with AYO! while they walk toward Main Street.

PLEASE NOTE* The practice of smudging is traditionally a ceremony for purifying or cleansing the soul of negative thoughts of a person or place. While all attendees are welcomed to smudge, please be mindful of the importance of a smudge offering. You are welcome to pass the offer if it is presented to you. We would just like to emphasis the importance of mutual respect during this event.
