Between July 26 and Aug. 11, walkers from communities between Portland and Seattle trekked northward as part of the annual Nipponzan Myohoji Peace Walk.

On Aug. 7, walkers arrived on Bainbridge Island and continued on to Suquamish the following day to take part in the Interfaith Peace Walk, which is sponsored by various organizations in the area advocating peace and “extinguishing the violent fire of nuclear annihilation.”
