At The Intersection of Injustice and Transformation: Where Do We Go From Here?

March 3, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


13th Annual Walk for a New Spring

Beginning February 21, the monks and nuns of the New England Peace Pagoda will lead their annual “Walk for a New Spring”, from Leverett, Massachusetts to Washington, DC.  The walk is 47 days long and will end on April 8th.    Join us for a discussion to welcome them to Cambridge.

Brian Corr – Executive Director, Cambridge Peace Commission

Chuck Turner – Former Boston City Councilor

Cathy Hoffman – Former Director of Cambridge Peace Commission

Themes include:                                

•                     Diplomacy not war

•                     An economy that uplifts ALL

•                     Renewable energy

•                     Jobs not jails

•                     Commit to ending racism

•                     Immigration reform

•                     Move resources from military to people’s needs

•                     Respect for the earth

From the harsh frozenness of mid-winter to the warm burst of spring, we walk for the understanding that our life-and-death challenges affecting our beautiful, common home, the earth, affect us all.  We walk to bring to the elected representatives in Washington, DC the collective aspirations and desire for positive change from the communities we have shared with on our pilgrimage.  We walk for a more peaceful future.
