In 2017 we planned our first-ever Walk/Run/Roll–Building the Beloved Community: Moving Towards Justice! in Spring Valley Park on June 30, 2018, instead of a banquet this year. The Beloved Community is an inclusive, democratic reality, which while not devoid of conflict, is free of violence. It is a place in which our deepest values of abundance, equity, community, hope, and most of all love, are infused into our policies and practices so that every person is held as beloved.
This event will include a Walk/Run/Roll of 3.1 miles and also 1 mile for our youth, elders (in age) or anyone who desires a shorter distance. This walk/run/roll is open and inclusive for community members using wheelchairs, walkers and strollers. After the walk/run there will be a community fellowship with food, music, singing, drumming and performances from social justice, cultural and faith communities. There will also be vendors to promote connections and awareness to businesses, agencies, social justice organizations, health institutions, and faith communities. This is an event for all ages and all people. Join us!
