In 2016, amid concerns about increasing rhetoric and violence against religious minorities in our country, UUSM members and friends helped kick off the first LA Interfaith Solidarity March with our friends at the Institute for Religious Tolerance, Peace, and Justice. In 2019, as threats against our Jewish and Muslim neighbors persist even here in Los Angeles and Santa Monica, it is more important than ever for us to walk with our interfaith friends and allies for freedom, tolerance, and peace.
It’s also a fun way to spend an afternoon, hear inspiring speakers from many faith traditions, enjoy delicious free food and musical entertainment, make connections, and meet new friends!
Join Faith In Action on Sunday, September 22 for the 4th Annual Interfaith Solidarity March #InterfaithMarchLA. We will gather by the FIA table in Forbes Hall at 12:30 pm and coordinate rides to the Islamic Center of Southern California on Vermont.

More event details
To all people of every faith, philosophy, and creed…
As a symbol of our solidarity with our neighbors and colleagues, we invite you to march with us between several select houses of worship, as together we lead the way toward peace and unity among all people.
The theme of this march is that we reject all hatred and oppression in the name of religion, both at home and abroad.
In light of the rise in politically motivated hate crimes, and the persistence of genocides, we support the most vulnerable of religious communities against Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and all forms of religious or ideological extremism, as we stand in support of every person’s right to freedom of worship or belief, and the right to live peacefully.
March route, approximately 1 mile (subject to change)
Meet at The Islamic Center of Southern California (434 S. Vermont Ave, Los Angeles) — Walk to Founders’ Church of Religious Science (3281 West 6th St.) — Next stop is Immanuel Presbyterian Church (3300 Wilshire Blvd.) — Return to The Islamic Center of Southern California.
There will be an exciting program of speakers, performers, and activities! Enjoy delicious food, courtesy of Sikhs of LA and the ICSC.
