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.
