In April and May of 2021 we will gather in three neighborhoods: Halls Hill, Columbia Pike and Green Valley to learn, reflect, and walk together. These walks will be an embodied exploration of the past and present racial history in Arlington. We will focus on housing practices.
Each walk will be offered twice, on Sundays from 1-2 pm and Tuesdays from 11:15 am-12:15 pm.
Each walk will begin with light stretching and prayer and will be a maximum of two miles. Walk at your own pace.
Rev. Blair and Rev. Alice are hosting the walks. Meet up locations in the eblast the week prior or email Alice. The VOICE community and Arlington community is invited to these walks!
RSVP so we know if you are coming at the links below.
We will send you the meeting location and route a few days beforehand.
