International Walk & Talk Against Racism

Join us for a dialogue about racism against the inspiring backdrop of the Washington Mall.

Racism is an issue that has long gripped the country (and the world). It’s a problem that we must acknowledge. And it’s one that we must work to overcome, together.

We’ll be a very international group - from all over the world and the U.S.; long-term residents and new arrivals to the area; young and old. We believe that our varied perspectives are a resource as we address these issues.

We will lament the history and present day of racism; and we will talk about how we can respond to racism as individuals, as families, and in our communities.

About the Fall 2021 Walk & Talk:

Photos at left are from our Spring 2021 International Walk & Talk Against Racism, when we started at the Chinatown Arch, where we discussed the outbreak of anti-Asian racism, before proceeding past the National Museum of African American History and Culture to the MLK Memorial.

FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: We also invite teens to consider joining our Youth Facing Racism Student Service Learning Program. This dynamic WCIE SSL program includes online discussions as well as a service project at Corhaven Graveyard, a historical burial ground for African-Americans who were enslaved in Shenandoah County, Virginia. Program information here.

Join us to think globally and engage locally, including on the toughest issues of our times.
