Department of Peace supporter John Aaron, CEO and Global Project Founder of CHALK4PEACE, Inc., is hitchhiking across the nation to attend the Department of Peace Campaign 2009 National Conference!
As John explains:
"These are times when we find ourselves compelled, rather than just willing, to go the extra mile (in this case, 2,400 miles) to demonstrate our commitment to bringing about the change that definitively gives peace its much needed chance."
Can you give John a ride for part of his journey?
He plans to leave Los Angeles or San Francisco on March 11-12, documenting his grassroots transcontinental journey 4 peace with CHALK4PEACE images on sidewalks across the U.S.
You can follow the Journey's progress here.
With briefs stops in Las Vegas or Reno, Boulder, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Columbus, Pittsburgh and on into D.C., John will present CHALK4PEACE to the Peace community at the Conference and revisit the original C4P sites throughout the Washington area.
As with any journey of this nature, this route may be subject to change due to weather.
Contact John if you can help transport him on a leg of his journey.
John is also open to any and all meetings with educators, coordinators, and interested CHALKSTARS during this journey and invites you to arrange a time while he is in your vicinity to visit your artists and CHALK4PEACE location. Again, his cell phone is 248-720-9119.
Why would John go to this effort? As he explains,
"This Conference stands as the most significant gathering of progressive thought from a collection of visionary thinkers whose collective goal is to place peace on the table as a viable approach to conflict resolution and global communication."
