Pilgrimage of Remembrance Agenda for Sunday June 15 and Monday June 16


The 300-mile Pilgrimage of Remembrance: "Making Strides toward Abolition and Reconciliation" begins in Raleigh on June 15 at 1:00 PM at Central Prison, 1300 Western Blvd. We walk to remember murder victims, people on death row, the executed, the exonerated and the families of all these persons and we walk to call for an end to the death penalty.

For more information on the purpose of the Pilgrimage, please see our first blog post.

Schedules for our first two days are below. Those joining us at Central Prison are encouraged to park on Dorothea Drive or Cabarrus Street immediately east of the prison.
Sunday, June 15
  • 1:00 Gather for spiritual reflection and blessing of the Pilgrimage.
  • 1:30 Begin walking
  • 2:30 Prayer and Reflection on the State Capital grounds (also first stop for rest!)
  • Resume walking by Governor's Mansion to Circus Restaurant, 1600 Wake Forest Road
  • Continue walking up Capital Blvd to Triangle Town Center vicinity
  • 6:00 Potluck Dinner and Service of Blessing and Support, Church of the Nativity, 8849 Ray Road
  • Rev. William Barber speaking
This will be a great time for so many of you who've said, "I'd like to walk with you but I can't" to eat with us and bless our journey.

Monday, June 16
  • 8:00 AM Begin walking along Capital Blvd near Triangle Town Center. (For exact meeting location, call Scott at 919-231-9752.)
  • Walk from Raleigh to Wake Forest to Franklinton.
Check out our Itinerary (still in flux) for where we are considering walking and holding a presence.

Pressing needs:
  • Food for Sunday's potluck dinner. It's hard to walk and cook at the same time, so we need people to bring food to Church of the Nativity, 8849 Ray Road, before 6:00 PM.
  • We also need help with set up and clean up for the potluck.
Thanks for your support!
