PeaceWalk 2024 in Delaware Valley; Related Events

June 10 @ 6:30 pm - June 23 @ 10:30 pm

In the tradition and spirit of the many wonderful longdistance walks for peace, Veterans For Peace has initiated a National Project which began May 7th, 2024, a walk from Maine to arrive in Washington DC in July. We will be walking for peace and an end to the threat of nuclear weapons and all wars, and for an environment that supports all life.

PeaceWalk 2024 is open to all  who love peace and will walk for it. Folks can join the walk for as little or as long as they can.
The walk, dedicated to the memory of Daniel Ellsberg (The Pentagon Papers; author off  “The Doomsday Machine, Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner”, will conclude at the NATO summit in Washington DC around July 4th 5th. In the Philadelphia area this is part of The Campaign to Save The Future and the Daniel Ellsberg Days of Action, June 11 June 19th We will conclude on Juneteenth! And a little beyond.
Join us. Sign up here to volunteer, attend, or if you represent an organization: peacehome.camgaigns@gmail.com
