Fall 2016 Interfaith Unity Walk
Flushing Interfaith Council seeks to:
Facilitate opportunities for people from diverse religious and spiritual
traditions to meet and engage with one another. Support educational projects that promote interfaith dialogue, solidarity,and understanding.
Strengthen our community through outreach, dialogue, and bearing
witness to issues of social justice.
Building a Network of Hope & Solidarity
The horrific attacks on September 11, 2001 brought people of all faiths together to mourn and denounce the loss of life. Out of that spirit of solidarity, the Queens Interfaith Unity Walk developed to provide an opportunity to create understanding and common ground among various faith traditions in our borough.
For the past several years, participants of many faiths have gathered and walked in the neighborhood of Flushing, one of the largest and most diverse communities in New York City.
During our Interfaith Unity Walks, we have visited the Hindu Temple Society of North America, Singh Sabha of New York, Won Korean Buddhist Temple, the Muslim Center
of New York, Free Synagogue of Flushing, St. Michael’s Church, Sikh Center of Flushing, Macedonia AME Church, Syed Jamaluddin Afghan Mosque, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens, Buddhist Zhu Chi Foundation, St. George’s Church, Taoist Temple of Flushing, Tenri Tenrikyo and others.
