This March for Peace and Unity will begin Sunday at noon at the Federal Building, 200 Federal Plaza, Paterson, NJ 07505, and process to the Great Falls National Park in Paterson.
Faith leaders will be offering prayers and prayerful messages about peace and dignity, values that unite all faith traditions. These leaders will include Rev. Joseph Kwiatkowski (Archdiocese of Newark), Imam Qatanani (Islamic Center of Passaic County), Rabbi Elyse Frishman (Barnert Temple), Rev. Dr. Kenneth Clayton (St. Luke Baptist Church), Rev. Alison Miller (Unitarian Universalist NJ Congregations) and others.
With the Muslim Ban many of us agree that we are at an “all hands on deck” moment. The question for most people is “what are we on deck for”? We think this event… Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and other religious leaders, joining hands with a loving humanitarian message… will be a key part of energizing those who need strength, good will, and hope.
PLEASE EXTEND THIS INVITATION TO YOUR FAITH COMMUNITIES OR OTHER GROUPS
