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
