This will the 15th Peace Walk in the North West. We walk listen share the voices of the victims of Warfare. For the past 15 years, we have walked in OR, WA,CA, NM & BC. Our ties to the Marshallese Community in Salem, OR has been strengthen through walking and praying with them. The steps we take are small just like a ripple in a pond, yet, it is certainly a way to teach the promise of peace on this earth. We will walk 11-16 miles per day. Work for peace by walking with us for the entire walk, just one day or even for a few hours. or just joining us for our evening potluck dinner and program. Bring personal gear and a smile and experience an experience of a lifetime. All are Welcome.
