Silent Walk for Justice and Peace, 5:30pm, July 7.
Join us for this peaceful, prayerful walk through the center of Wilmington to promote an end to racial and social injustice. We gather in the SsAM parking lot with people from various faith communities to share in this active, visible commitment to justice and peace in our community. We walk in silence, carrying battery-powered candles, ending at Rodney Square. It is a very moving experience. Please join us – and share this invitation with people you know who are dedicated to this purpose. After the walk ends, people are invited to the Chris White Gallery, at the corner of 7th and N. Shipley Streets, for refreshments and conversation. Click here to learn more about these prayerful Walks for Justice and Peace.

Delaware Racial Challenge, August 21-25
For five consecutive days each quarter during 2023, participants are prompted with a daily e-mail challenge — such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, or watching a video — and are then encouraged to reflect on that content and to relate the situation to their own lives. Participants discover how racial inequity and social injustice impact our community. The goal is to build new understandings and new connections and in so doing, to begin dismantling systemic racism in Delaware. This year’s Challenge topics are:
August 21-25 — Implicit Bias in Schools/Parenting
November 27-December 1 — Implicit Bias in Voting
