This event is part of National Jane Jacob’s Walk Weekend, and is presented in collaboration with The Interfaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut, along with People Friendly Stamford, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign and Stamford Downtown Special Services District. Stamford’s first annual Community Interfaith Walk will be held in Stamford Downtown on Sunday, May 4 at 3:00 p.m.
The walk, which will begin and end at Veterans Memorial Park on Atlantic Street, is intended as a “walking conversation” about Stamford and its streets. Participants will also stop periodically along the walk for blessings from different religious traditions. The walk’s organizers will continue the conversation after the walk at Bar Rosso at 30 Spring Street, ¼-mile north of Veterans Memorial Park.
The walk will also be part of the international Jane’s Walk festival, a global movement of free, locally-led walks inspired by author and urban activist Jane Jacobs. Between May 2 and 4, Thousands of people around the world will come together to walk, learn about their cities, connect with their neighbors and share ideas on how to tackle community challenges and solve problems.
