IRT has been very proud to host Barefoot Peace Walk for the last three years. But we feel that it is time to shift the focus of the walk. For this we need YOU!
We are looking for groups to take over from IRT to organise the Barefoot Peace Walk. We love the idea of the event, but our team is too small to organise it every year.
So are you part of a community group, activist group, a student group, a refugee lead organisation, or are you an individual with a passion to organise this event? Get in touch now!
What is Barefoot Peace Walk?
IRT organised the Barefoot Peace Walk for the first time in 2009 to raise awareness about the rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Our local partners in Yambio, South Sudan, started this walk three years ago, and we mirrored this walk in London (UK), Gulu and Lira (Uganda) to show solidarity.
The walk aims to raise the profile of this conflict and to bring like-minded people together.
Over the past three years, hundreds came to walk barefoot through Central London. Now we want to expand the walk to look beyond the LRA and be part of a wider context: Holding all parties involved in this conflict and other conflicts all over the world accountable for the role they play in perpetuating violence.
Take control and become part of Barefoot Peace Walk. Please get in touch to discuss how you can get involved.
