Join us as we make our way, walking, rolling, marching and convening across North Carolina during the week of April 14-19!
Each Spring Witness for Peace Southeast is joined by coalition of organizations, activists, and communities who travel across North Carolina to raise awareness and encourage action on a variety of pressing issues. Throughout our travels we hold a variety of educational events, vigils, and actions. This year our demands include:
ICE OUT OF OUR COMMUNITIES
End Police Brutality
End Mass Incarceration
Stop Human Rights Abuses in Detention
Check back for updates and more details as the dates get closer.

Interested in being a core participant and traveling with us to all of our stops? Send us a message and let us know!
Q: I’d like to participate, but I can’t walk for a whole week. What can I do?
A: You can still join us! Whether the whole journey isn’t feasible for you due to your schedule or a physical condition, we welcome and encourage all to join us for as much or as little time as they can, whether that be an hour, a day, or the entire journey. We realize that not all who want to join the Pilgrimage will be able to do so for the entire journey, so we’ll post updates about when we will be in each city we pass through.
Q: I still can’t join the walk, but I’d like to do something. How can I help?
A: Donations for food and water along the way are always helpful, but you can also help make signs and posters for Pilgrimage participants to carry. For more information, please see the Get Involved section of our website.
