Pan Pacific Park to Draw Crowd on Sunday for Walk to End Genocide

This Sunday, Pan Pacific Park will be a busy venue as Jewish World Watch (JWW) is holding its 7th Annual Walk to End Genocide with over 2000 walkers expected from local schools, synagogues, churches and the greater community. The Walk will raise awareness and support for the survivors of genocide in Sudan and Congo, and will raise vitally needed funds to end such atrocities.

The Walk will be followed by a “Global Village” fair, with performances from acclaimed spoken word artist Omékongo Dibinga and Adaawe, advocacy opportunities from petitions with calls to the President, speakers, food, music, and “Change for Change” art project. Walkers will also be able to participate in the One Million Bones Project, and their work will be displayed at the National Mall in Washington DC.

Registration can be done the day of the event beginning at 9 am. Complete information can be found at the Walk to End Genocide.
