Mesa encourages residents to participate in Unity Walk


Mesa will join Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Guadalupe and host city Tempe in the Regional Unity Walk and Festival tomorrow, Jan. 27 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Vice Mayor David Luna will be among the walkers from Mesa celebrating cultural diversity and community.

“The Unity Walk is a great opportunity for neighboring communities to come together and display a united front against discrimination and promote mutual respect and understanding for all community members,” Mesa Community Services Director Ruth Giese said.

The walk will begin with a festival at 4:30 p.m. at Tempe Beach Park. It will include refreshments and entertainment. The one-mile candlelight walk will start at 6 p.m.  Families, community organizations, scout groups, school clubs and church groups are all welcome to participate. Mesa walkers are encouraged to wear turquoise or teal-colored shirts. Free T-shirts will be available on a first-come basis.
