Details for the day of the Walk:

The Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation will officially begin at the Arch Street Friends Meeting House at 320 Arch St. at 2:00 PM on the 29th. As parking in Center City is limited, attendees are encouraged to park in the parking lot at Al Aqsa Islamic Academy at 1501 Germantown Ave. Two buses will begin shuttling people to the Arch Street Friends Meeting House at 1:00, with the last bus leaving at 1:45. People parking at Al Aqsa are also welcome to attend afternoon prayers in the mosque at 1:00. (Note:There is a small parking lot at Arch Street Friends Meeting House. For people parking
there, buses will be available at Al Aqsa at the conclusion of the Peace Walk (beginning
at approximately 5:20 p.m. to transport people back to Arch Street Meeting House.
Society Hill Synagogue has on street parking only.)

After the program at the Arch Street Friends Meeting House has ended, there will be a short walk (0.6 miles) to Society Hill Synagogue at 418 Spruce St. Following the program at Society Hill Synagogue, there will be a longer walk of approximately 60 minutes (just over 2.2 miles) back to Al Aqsa. Buses will again be available to provide transportation for those who need it. PLEASE BRING WATER in your own eco-friendly containers, as bottled water will be limited and we wish to encourage eco-awareness, stewardship and sustainability as as part of the principles of the Walk. 

During the Walk, the two buses will be available to transport anyone needing assistance, and medics will be available to treat anyone needing attention. Peace Walk guides and ushers will be available, wearing colored armbands. The houses of worship are handicapped accessible.

We suggest wearing white, at least white tops, as a sign of unity. Peace Walk t-shirts will be available for sale at Al Aqsa and Arch Street Meeting House before the walk (more details on t-shirt sales to be posted soon!).
