San Diego Peace Heroes Walk

March 19 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

TKF is wants a big presence at the first San Diego Peace Heroes Walk in Carlsbad. The walk honors heroes like Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Malala, Dalai Lama, Mandela, Pope Francis, Rosa Parks, John Lennon and Mohamed Ali.  Among the heroes to be honored at our local march is Tariq Khamisa.  We want to invite all staff, interns, volunteers, and their families to join us in honoring the peace legacy that has been created in Tariq’s name.

The Peace Heroes Walk is a joint initiative between the 21st Century Peace Literacy Foundation and San Diego Rotarians. Peace heroes are people from all walks of life who have taken risks to embody nonviolent ideas (justice, reconciliation, interconnection and rejection of vengeance) and have succeeded in making the world a less violent and more just place.

The walk’s mission is threefold:

  • to promote peace literacy through peace hero stories
  • to inspire a new generation of peace leaders
  • to plan for next year’s San Diego Peacebuilders Walk that will support local organizations working toward peace in the world.

The walk is 2 miles starting from the Gazebo. There will be live entertainment at the event and some light refreshments and beverages will be provided for the TKF Team.  We are going to try and have t-shirts available for the TKF team. Lots of pictures will be taken.

Registration will begin at 12:30 pm on Walk Day.  There is no charge to participate.
