One Day Peace Walk – Friday, 23rd January

Friday, January 23rd is the beginning of the Nuke Free California Weekend gathering in San Luis Obispo. (see more info at: SLO Mother for Peace ) To commemorate this event and to start the New Year on a note of hope, Reverend Sawada will be walking from Diablo Canyon to the Courthouse in San Luis Obispo. It is a peaceful and prayerful 12 mile walk.

Bill Deneen, a long-time local activist elder, will also be there with signs from 10am.
