At 4:30 p.m. on Sun. April 29, Unity of Charleston will host the Charleston chapter of the Interfaith March for Peace and Justice along with other religious and secular leaders in the area.

The Interfaith March for Peace and Justice was started in April of 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. This year, the event will also be held in 15 American cities and five international cities in Uganda, Pakistan, and India. Each city will be marching at the same time, 4:30 p.m. EDT or 2 a.m. IST at the Kashmir, India march. At each event, leaders in the community will present their religion’s or founder’s views on religious freedom and the unhealthy nature of discrimination.

The Charleston march will feature speakers and artists from 14 religions and belief systems, including Buddhism, Secular Humanism, and the Abrahamic religions. The artists will provide music, including an interpretive dance piece from a Native American dance troupe. During the event, there will be a Skype call with the original Columbus event as well as one of the international events.
