For 16 years, the annual Good Friday Walk, sponsored by the Dallas Area Christian Progressive Alliance (DACPA), has elevated the teachings of Jesus on the day of his death. We welcomed immigrants, reflected on the struggles of the hungry and the sick, and promoted a society focused on justice and mercy (Matthew 23:23-24).
This year, our 17th, we are turning our focus to the issue of racial justice in the city of Dallas. On Friday, April 15, 2022, starting at noon we will gather to witness, to lament, and to envision and hope for a future of an anti-racist faith and city.
