Of paper cranes and peace

Posted: Thursday, July 01, 2010

For seven years, Juneau People for Peace and Justice has participated in the Fourth of July parade with large paper cranes folded from paper taken off school bulletin boards at the end of the school year. We will be in the parade with peace cranes again this year. Everyone is welcome to walk and talk and sing and hope for peace in the world as we walk through the streets of our hometown. This year, we are also advocating U.S. Senate ratification of the new START Treaty, to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in Russia and the United States.

Please join us at the Department of Labor parking area near the bridge at 11 a.m. as we assemble. We can do this together.

For more about why we carry paper cranes, please read Eleanor Core's book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, or go online to find out more about the Story of Sadako.
