The CC's program in recent years has grown beyond walk events to include year-round Interfaith Youth Action Groups and multicultural, multifaith dinners. See http://911unitywalk.org/
The signature event of the Unity Walk CC is an annual interfaith walk commemorating 9/11. It convenes at Washington Hebrew Congregation, Washington DC's largest synagogue; continues down Massachusetts Avenue's Embassy Row to the Islamic Center, DC's oldest masjid or mosque; and terminates at the Gandhi Memorial in front of the Embassy of India. Along the way, significant congregations and sanctuaries open their doors in hospitality to the walkers. These congregations include Pentecostals, Sikhs, Roman Catholics, Episcopalians, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Community of Christ, Buddhists, Hindus and others. The event has been described as a cross between a Gandhi-style walk and an open-house tour.
Community-service projects are also a part of the day. In partnership with Religions for Peace USA, 9/11 Unity Walks have been launched in New York City. The CC's program in recent years has grown beyond walk events to include year-round Interfaith Youth Action Groups and multicultural, multifaith dinners. See http://911unitywalk.org/
