The Caravan of Unity Across America and Around the World is the fulfillment of a vision that has been held since 2012, when the first U Day Festival happened in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Formally convened at the UN Tillman Chapel in October 2016 the “Road to 2020” has led through many sacred sites and events around the world and the Caravan of Unity is the last leg of that long road, climaxing in Peace Weekend 2020 (September 19-21) before completing on the National Mall in Washington DC on September 28, 2020.
While the US Caravan is moving from coast to coast the European Caravan of Unity Europe is hosting events across that continent also culminating in Peace Weekend and the International Day of Peace (September 21).
The Caravan Across America is a mixture of “in place” events with social distancing (safety first) supported by virtual broadcasts.
