Anti-Violence Unity Walk [Saturday, June 10]

The second annual Unity Walk in Jersey City, hosted by The Jersey City Anti-Violence Coalition Movement, takes place this Saturday, June 10.

The walk begins at the corner of McAdoo Ave. and Martin Luther King Drive at 9am, and ends at Lincoln Park, where there will be a picnic, games, live entertainment, informational booths, and crafts.

Beyond the walk, the Jersey City Anti-Violence Coalition Movement hosts empowerment workshops each month.

It’s that time of year again, Jersey City—when we GET OUR BIKE ON and ride throughout the six wards of Jersey City in the Bike JC Ward Tour.

The race begins at 11am at Exchange Place on Sunday, June 4th. Enjoy a 15-mile ride on streets closed to traffic at an easy 10mph pace (with rest stops and a police escort). Upon finishing, celebrate with live music, food, drinks and other fun.

Registration is free, with a $5 suggested donation to fund BikeJC’s efforts to make cycling better, safer and more accessible in Jersey City.

Ward Tour check-in begins at 9am at Exchange Place. It’s recommended to get there before 10am because—of course—you want to situate yourself and hype up before the tour.

Be inspired. Helmets REQUIRED.
