On September 11th, 2016, people of all faiths and cultures from around the Washington, DC region will walk down Massachusetts Avenue and visit houses of worship and other religious centers in a public celebration of unity and support for everyone within our diverse community.

Today, more than ever, our message of friendship and solidarity is critical. We hope you will join us and add your voice to this powerful event.

The Unity Walk is open and free to everyone. There is a suggested donation of $25 for adults and $10 for students, seniors, and those of limited income. Please consider contributing to the walk beyond the suggested amount if you are able.

Register for the Walk here.

Unity Walk Preliminary Schedule:
Walkers are invited to join the walk at anytime along the route.

Opening program: 1:30 pm at Washington Hebrew Congregation–Macomb St NW, Washington, DC 20016

Closing Program: 4:30 pm, location TBD.

Additional Activities:
Resource Fair: This is an excellent opportunity to share information about your organization with a diverse cross-section of people from throughout the greater DC area. For more information about the fair, or if you would like to take part, please email us at: unitywalk@ifcmw.org.

Service Projects: We will have two service projects at the Unity Walk this year. The first will be at Washington Hebrew Congregation (WHC) between 12:30 and 1:30pm.  Together with WHC and Friendship Place, we will be collecting long underwear to help men, women, and children in need in the DC area. We invite all walkers to donate a pair (or more) of long underwear when they arrive at WHC. Sizes XL and larger are best, although all sizes are welcome.

The second will be apple bagging at Annunication Catholic Church. This project is part of an ongoing gleaning program at The Society of St. Andrews in Virginia.

To serve as a volunteer during the day, please email us at: unitywalk@ifcmw.org
