In celebration of cultural diversity and community, Mesa will join Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Guadalupe and host city Tempe in the 19th Annual Regional Unity Walk and Festival Saturday, Jan. 28, from 4:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
"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," said Andrea Alicoate, City of Mesa Diversity and Special Projects Manager.
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.
