Minnesota Governor Tim Walz will be visiting multiple American history monuments across Minnesota this week, including in Duluth.

On Thursday, Walz will be visiting the Soldiers and Sailors Monument located at 411 West First Street "to call for reflection, civility, and peace," a news release from the governor's office says. 

The planned trips across the state are in response to the events that transpired in Washington D.C. last Wednesday.

The release says Walz "will encourage Minnesotans to reflect on the greater context that led to this dark moment in history" and "urge Minnesotans to reflect on how divisive rhetoric undermined our democratic institutions over time and call on Minnesotans to come together to restore democracy for all."
