The Interfaith March for Peace & Justice is a national event that will be held on April 29, 2018 and begin simultaneously in cities and towns across the country. Initiated by the Safe Alliance for Interfaith Leaders and co-sponsored (on the local level) by the North Columbus Friends Meeting, this event has garnered interest across the country; sister marches are in the early stages of planning in over a dozen cities at this time. We would like to invite Friends who are interested to consider bringing this event to their communities.

The purpose of this peaceful, non-partisan event is to share the following unifying message: we affirm equal justice and religious liberty for all and we condemn all acts of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or violence against people based on their religion, race, or place of origin. If you’d like to learn more, please visit our website at interfaithmarch.com or email Greg Davis at gdavis853@gmail.com. It only takes one person to get the ball rolling to organize a march in any given location. (We don’t care how large or small it may be). Thank you for your consideration.

In recent communications, the Peace and Service Committee invited Friends to learn details of the Border Convergence program by visiting http://www.soaw.org/border/ . We hope Friends who plan to attend have informed themselves about the schedule planned by School of the Americas Watch, and we hope many Friends will participate. Here’s a direct link to the schedule: http://www.soaw.org/border/weekend-program/
