Trail of Dreams Peace Walk Returns to the United States

August 11, 2008

Morocco (PRnine – August 11, 2008) – The Spirit of Truth Foundation announced today the final leg of its worldwide walk for peace. Entitled The Trail of Dreams World Peace Walk-A-Long, the last stage of the 3 ½ year event will begin in New York City on January 21, 2009 and conclude April 21, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia, where the foundation is presently headquartered.

The Trail of Dreams World Peace Walk, which originated from Atlanta in October 2005, is organized by the Spirit of Truth Foundation to promote world peace and understanding among people in communities across six continents. The walk’s three initiatives are peace education, environmental sustainability, and fitness and wellness in communities. Peace Walk activities towards these ends are ultimately informed by The Spirit of Truth Foundation’s commitment to social justice, environmental justice, and world peace through a grassroots approach.

During the course of the walk, the Trail of Dreams team have met with local community leaders, spiritual leaders, and youth leaders to learn about important issues affecting communities they encounter. The team of Peace Walkers also assists communities by fostering the implementation of conflict resolution strategies, sustainable living techniques, and healthy lifestyle choices among community members. Other Peace Walk activities include peace education forums, interfaith ceremonies, and Artists for PEACE Sake events.

In addition to the Trail of Dreams World Peace Walk, the Spirit of Truth Foundation is currently organizing PEACE in Action, a coalition of organizations with the common goal of addressing international and national policies that affect youth, families and communities. Other projects organized by the Foundation include Uprising, a theatrical production company, Beyond the Global Divide International Young Leaders Peace Summits, and The Trail of Dreams Summer Wilderness Experience, an outreach program for urban youth.

The Spirit of Truth Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization established in Washington, DC, in 1991 by Audri Scott Williams, a former college dean who has won many awards for her dedication to humanity, and Jon A. Ware, an environmental scientist, educator, musical composer and performer.
