More than 200 people and a dozen organizations have already signed on to travel part or all of the 90 mile route to the city of Charlottesville from Manassas. The March will mark the anniversary of the events of August 2017 and bring the diverse communities of Virginia together.
The march will begin in the parking lot of Congregation Ner Shalom in Manassas on August 9th and will make 3 overnight stops until it reaches Charlottesville. For more information, see Umah.org or Unity March Against Hate on FB, call or text 202-876-6367 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
UMAH MEANS COMMUNITY
Jamie Beletz asked Aeshah Sheikh to walk with him against hate. Aeshah asked someone to walk with her against hate. The word spread and soon there were 35 individuals, all from the Prince William County community, who agreed that they would walk, pedal a bike, ride or drive a car, ride on a bus from Prince William County to Charlottesville.
They started to speak to groups and asked that others walk with them. They are traveling around the state: Charlottesville, Orange County, Culpepper, Richmond, Virginia Beach, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon and others. If you would like to hear more about the March or want to get more involved, please sign up on our page or invite us to a meeting of your group.
