This year, from September 15 – 23, one hundred women will walk on a 100-mile pilgrimage from a detention center in York County, Pennsylvania to Washington, DC. Set to arrive when the Pope will be speaking in Congress and meeting with the President, they will walk carrying stories from a site of human suffering to the Pope with a message of human dignity.
