Dedicated to Daniel Ellsberg, 1931–2023,
and all the peacemakers

Peace Pilgrim near Topeka, Kan., in the late 1970s. She had walked 25,000 miles by 1964, and continued for almost two more decades. She carried only a pen, a comb, a toothbrush and a map.

In the tradition and spirit of the many wonderful long-distance walks for peace, Veterans For Peace has initiated a National Project to begin April 27, 2024, and walk from Augusta, Maine, to arrive in Washington, DC, in July. We’ll be walking for the wellbeing of all people, for peace and an end to the threat of nuclear war and all wars, and for an environment that supports all life. PeaceWalk 2024 will be open to all who love peace and want to walk for it. Folks can join the walk for as little or as long as they wish.

This walk is dedicated to the memory of Daniel Ellsberg, the man who released the Pentagon Papers and exposed the lies that Americans were being told about the Vietnam War. Dan spent nearly every waking hour of the next five decades working for peace and trying to prevent nuclear war. Shortly before he died last year at age 92, he wrote, “The current risk of nuclear war, over Ukraine, is as great as the world has ever seen.” We need to heed his words.
