Good Friday Walk for Justice
Friday, April 14th, 2017
12 pm- 3:00 pm
Gather at the corner of Michigan and Congress
IMAGINE: Honoring Our Visions of Justice – asks us to look internally and externally. What does it mean to honor our visions? We hope the 2017 Good Friday Walk for Justice will provide the space to name and explore our visions for a just and peaceful world. Often we focus on what is missing and we forget to maintain a hopeful vision. In order to honor that hope we recommit ourselves to courageous thought and action in the face of great despair.
Each year we join together for this modern-day Way-of-the- Cross to shed light on unjust societal structures and to reflect on how we can work to dismantle them. Thank you for joining us in this ‘holy’ endeavor!
