Welcome and General Instructions

We welcome everyone to this Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation. Please see the following general instructions:

  • We suggest wearing white, at least white tops, as a sign of unity.

  • People with colored armbands will be present as guides and ushers and available to answer any questions about Walk logistics.

  • Please proceed to each location as a single group.

  • Rest rooms will be available at each location.

  • Buses will be available to transport anyone needing assistance, and medics will be available to treat anyone needing attention during the Walk.  Contact a guide or usher if required.

Join us in our Journey as we seek Peace, Understanding, and Justice.

What The Peace Walk is All About

Since 2004, the annual Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation has drawn crowds ranging from 500 to 1,000 participants; an even more impressive feat given that the Peace Walk is an entirely grass root initiative.  Read our complete history Here 

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help support the work of the Interfaith Peace Walk. 

The Philadelphia Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation strives to create an environment to nurture a transformative process of reflection, relationship building, and action among faith and secular groups working toward peace and justice through periodic dialogues about challenging issues such as 

community service, outreach to religious and ethnic groups experiencing intolerance or persecution, and an annual Peace Walk.
