The Unity Walk Story
Why do we Walk each year at the 9/11 Unity Walk?
“We walk because we have not yet arrived.” Imam Mohamed Magid, of All Dulles Area Muslims Society.
All houses of worship on Embassy Row, Massachusetts Avenue open their doors to each other and to you.
People of different faiths, philosophies, cultures, and those who claim no faith, are invited to experience a world of traditions through music, art, architecture, service, and food.
