See the videos below of ISAAC leaders talking about the Walk/Run/Roll on Saturday morning, June 30 at Spring Valley Park!
If you haven’t already signed up, we want to invite you to join ISAAC’s Walk/Run/Roll: Building the Beloved Community: Moving Towards Justice. The Beloved Community is an inclusive, democratic reality that, 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/roll 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.
At the Walk/Run/Roll we will be honoring all these awardees: Mayor Bobby Hopewell, Chief Karianne Thomas, Chairwoman Stephanie Moore, Rev. Don DeYoung, Andrew Chaponda, Rev. Joslyn Mason, and Kalamazoo’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation’s Healing and Relationship Building Team.
