The monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji Peace Pagoda will lead a Walk for a Nuclear Free Future from March 2 to May 2, 2010, to offer prayer and call attention to the United Nation’s review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The walk begins in the terrority of the Six Nations near Buffalo, NY, where nuclear waste and nuclear weapons, have been important issues, and continues to New York City. Walkers will cover more than 700 miles on the route; some of the cities on the route include Buffalo, Rochester, Ithaca, and Albany.
You can support the walk by joining for an hour, a day, or for the entirety. You can also support the walkers by organizing a community potluck, a sharing circle, a visit to your mayor, a place for walkers to sleep, or a coverage by the local media. For more information, contact:

Walk in Massachusetts?
Thanks for the nudge. I didn’t see the New England walk when I did my first search, but after your prompt, I looked again and here it is: http://www.justicewithpeace.org/node/986 I’ll add that to the list. I took part in some of that walk about six years ago, so thanks for the reminder!
