Day of Unity
May 3 all-day
Day of Unity @ Online

The Day of Unity* (DOU) is an annual, coordinated day of interfaith local, grassroots action and community building around the DC metro area. It is an opportunity for people of different faiths, or of no faith, to come together and create an event at the local level. The event could be anything from a meal, to a dialogue, to a community project, to a shared worship service or any other activity that brings people together across faith traditions.

This year, the DoU will be Sunday, May 3rd. Since we anticipate that events will take place virtually, we have put together a list of events that translate well to online forums. You are not limited to these

15th Annual (virtual) Unity Walk

Against the backdrop of sadness and pain that we are witnessing in our country, many of us are experiencing a daily struggle to cling to the positive values of compassion and civility that we need to thrive as a nation.  Join us as we lift up those around us and strive towards a more just and compassionate DMV at our 15th annual (virtual) Unity Walk, Sunday, September 13th, 2020.

Although we will not walk together in person this year, we will still come together to celebrate the diversity of our region, to visit houses of worship, and most importantly, to listen to each other with respect and love.  Now is time for us all to come together and unite around our shared humanity.
