Described as a cross between a Gandhi-style walk and open house tour, the 9/11 Unity Walk
brings thousands of people representing hundreds of organizations,
religious groups and diplomatic communities together to walk in "unity,"
building bridges of understanding and respect. Walkers visit a dozen
faiths and listen to moving speeches from international figures like
Reverend Mpho Tutu and Arun Gandhi and engage in thought-provoking
dialogue with one another. Walkers are encouraged to seek out and strike
up conversations with people of different faiths, reflect, and also
celebrate. The event includes Muslim call to prayers at the Washington
Hebrew Congregation, Evangelicals and gospel singers at the Islamic
Center of Washington and people of all faiths volunteering for service
projects as one.
