UPDATE to Peace Walk 2024: Walking for Peace and Planet, Justice and Democracy

May 11 - May 15

NOTE: If you are planning on joining the walk, please make sure to read the most recent email. Starting times and locations sometimes change the night before!

Note that tomorrow’s start location has been changed from Gleason Park to the Home Depot, 240 Lafayette Road, Seabrook, NH.

Today, the walkers stopped at Seabrook to commemorate the antinuclear actions of the Clamshell Alliance before going to a potluck and conversation at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Exeter. Photos and video on Instagram  (PeaceWalk2024) and Facebook.

We also got a transcription of Sherri Mitchell’s powerful invocation at the opening ceremony in Ogunquit May 7. This has been posted at Peace & Planet News, and it’s worth reading, even if you were already heard it in person.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR WALKERS:

We ask that people be as self-sufficient as possible. We are able to provide indoor space for sleeping, including some home stays, for most nights and for most participants, but there will be some nights when we will be camping out.

All walkers please bring:

  • comfortable walking shoes
  • rain gear if the weather warrants
  • snacks for the road
  • water bottles (we will have a large water container in the van for refilling)

If you will be staying with the walk overnight, please bring:

  • Sleeping bag and mat
  • Tent if you have one
  • Reusable plate, bowl, and utensils
  • Change of clothing as needed

You will not have to carry these with you while you walk–we will transport belongings in the support vehicles–but please make sure your items are clearly identifiable as yours.
