LONG WALK FOR FREEDOM

Why are we marching?

Too many human beings around the world face the appalling realities of enforced disappearances, torture, extrajudicial killings, and forced conversions. Amidst it all, those with the power to act stand by as global temperatures rise beyond the point of no return, sparking unprecedented fires, droughts, and massive storms.

It is time we stand in solidarity.

Join us at any of our major stops!

The march will begin on April 7, 2021 at the UN headquarters in New York City, NY, and end in Washington, D.C. on April 29. We will cross through five states by foot: Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.

March with us at any of our major stops! Please wear a mask.

Want to do more?

It takes a lot of people and resources to plan a 350-mile march. If you are interested, we could use your help!

Donate 

We need $60,000 to cover food and water, lodgings, personal protection equipment, first aid, and other arrangements to afford protection and safe passage to all participants. 

This march will mark the beginning of a new era. If you are able, please donate and share.

Volunteer

If you live in any of the cities that we will be marching through, we would value your help with preparation and outreach in your city.

If you can volunteer to help organize the stop in your city, or can connect us to community members and leaders, email us at sindhifoundation@gmail.com

Share on social media

We need people power to fuel the Long Walk – but we can't reach all people ourselves. If you are excited about this march, or know others who may be able to support, tell the world!

Share the news on social media. We have downloadable post and story graphics for you to use!
