Join Us for the 35th Annual

Good Friday Walk for Justice

Friday April 3, 2015 

Congress and Michigan



This year’s theme “Give Light and People Will Find the Way“ is the inspired title of Ella Baker’s workshop during the Civil Rights Movement at the Highlander Folk School in Tennessee. We believe, as did Ella Baker, “we will find the way” to make the spirit of the resurrection of true peace with justice happen through our collective efforts.

Every Good Friday, 8th Day gathers friends and partners for our Annual  Good Friday Walk for Justice.

The Walk is a modern-day way-of-the-cross.  Starting at the corner of Congress and Michigan we walk, pray, and sing our way through 10 Stations in downtown Chicago.  We explore the issues of the day that remind us, to “give light”.
