11th Annual Bridge Walk for Peace

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.
