9/11 Unity Walk – DC

The 9/11 Unity Walk invites you to commemorate the 10 years since the acts of terror on September 11, 2001 by building bridges of respect and understanding.

IMAGINE the sound of the Muslim call to prayer at Washington’s largest synagogue. Imagine Jewish cantors and “Amazing Grace” sung over the mosque loudspeakers.LEARN about different faiths at open houses for churches, synagogues, temples, gurdwaras and mosques. BE MOVED BY speakers with names like Tutu and Gandhi, enjoy diverse cuisines, and participate in a service project hosted by Unity Walk‘s Interfaith Youth Action Group (IYAG).
Desmond Tutu, on the Unity Walk: “It touches me greatly that so many people of all faiths put aside their differences and walk hand in hand. I encourage these Unity Walks, not only in Washington, D.C. but around the U.S. and the world.  Your actions speak volumes and I pray for your every success.” See him speak about the 2008 walk:
