Diversity Stride 15th year Anniversary

New Jersey Values Diversity and Inclusion!

Saturday, June 6, 2015

Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ



Each year social justice advocates, change agents, students, community leaders, corporate employees, youth-based organizations, cultural groups and teams of walkers enjoy a leisurely 5K walk in a select New Jersey city park.

The Diversity Stride promotes community unity and helps to ensure our neighbors of all races, faiths, ethnicities, identities and ages know that they are valued and respected.  At the Diversity Stride, you will enjoy cultural entertainment as well as food and refreshments and the sense of fulfillment that comes along with valuing diversity and promoting respect.

All Diversity Stride proceeds benefit our Youth Leadership Programs, which help to provide more diversity education and leadership development training to students throughout New Jersey. Our programs create change agents, addresses bullying, and prepares the next generation to lead in our schools, our workplaces, and in our communities
