Some of the Peace Walkers gather in LFP

20 people were present on August 6, 2020 in Lake Forest Park at the Peace Pole on the corner of Bothell Way NE and Ballinger Way NE for the start of the day for the Pacific Northwest Peace Walk.

The theme this year is for a Nuclear Free World and Racial Justice.

The Peace Walk was shorter than in past years due to the pandemic. The Peace Walk began in Tacoma on August 5th and will end at the Trident nuclear submarine base at Bangor, Washington on August 8th.
