The 8th Day Center for Justice will host the 30th annual Good Friday Walk for Justice on Friday, April 2, noon, meeting on the corner of Congress and Michigan Streets. The theme for this year’s Good Friday Walk – Trouble the Water – reflects 8th Day Center’s belief that each of us must bear the responsibility to be in solidarity with those who suffer at the hands of dominating and abusive power. Those who are condemned, burdened, stripped of dignity, tortured and killed by unjust public policies.
