Join members of the faith and service community to commemorate the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on April 4, with a sunrise walk on the Ben Franklin Bridge, followed by coffee and a discussion around race relations in our community. Participants will meet promptly at 6:00 am at the north walkway entrance, on the Philadelphia side of the Ben Franklin Bridge. We will then walk to the pinnacle of the bridge– stopping at sunrise to offer a prayer for peace– and return to Philadelphia.
The discussion following the walk will take place at Historic St. George’s United Methodist Church, 235 N. 4th Street, Philadelphia, PA between 7:30 – 8 AM. Refreshments will be served.
