Jericho Walk - Tuesday, 17 September at 1:00pm
Burlington ICE Office 10 District Avenue Burlington
The Jericho Walk is a silent interfaith prayer and act of solidarity. The walk draws inspiration from the Battle of Jericho, in which the community marched around the city of Jericho seven times, causing the city walls to fall. The Jericho Walk of today is a silent, peaceful, and prayerful walk to bring down the walls of our unjust immigration system and is open to people of all or no religious faiths. Please bring signs calling for just treatment of those who are caught in our broken immigration system. Please refrain from signs explicitly endorsing or condemning any political candidate or official.
