Peace Walk Planning Meeting

Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017 -
6:30pm to 8:30pm

Visitors are invited and welcomed to our monthly meetings which occur on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. at the Al Aqsa Islamic Academy:

1501 N Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19122 - map

Meetings are informal and lively. They provide a more frequent setting, beyond the peace walk itself, to develop and strengthen our interfaith and personal relationships through our program planning.  Typically meetings begin with brief introductions and a meditation period, followed by discussion of a variety of issues. In addition to planning for the annual peace walk, we organize volunteer work projects, interfaith and race dialogue groups, and small teams that visit local congregations for interfaith outreach.   For more information on how to join, help or become a partner in peace with the Walk, please contact us.
