As part of our 2017 Emanuel 9 Commemoration Events –
The “Hate Won’t Win Unity Walk” honors the Emanuel 9 who tragically lost their lives on June 17, 2015, and the survivors who live to tell the story. The walk will bring those of different races, religions, and backgrounds to contest hate and spread love across the world. Although hearts continue to be burdened in memory of loved ones, their legacies will be honored through the walk for peace and equity. The “Unity Walk” is a universal symbol of love to embrace our differences and to inspire conversations and changes in cultural relations around the world. The walk will conclude on the lawn of the Gaillard Center with a brief program and a motivational speech by Mr. Jeff Robinson, Deputy Legal Director and Director of the Trone Center for Justice and Equality – American Civil Liberties, to the families of the Emanuel 9, the survivors, and the community. All are invited to join in the walk to declare and proclaim that “hate won’t win.”
