WHO ARE WE?
Footprints for Peace was born from the participation of
many Native American Sacred Runs and Walks from 1993.
The message that we still carry with us today taught
from these runs and walks is: All Life is Sacred and
Protecting Mother Earth.
After the 2005 Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty walk,
Footprints grew into what we are today a strong global
community of friends that organise events to create a
The events bring people together from all over the world
to walk, run or bike ride from community to community as
an effective way to educate ourselves and the public on
different environmental, political, social and cultural
All our events are guided by Footprints for Peace
statement of non-violence and are drug and alcohol free.
This is in solidarity with indigenous and non indigenous
people from around the world whose
have been devastated by the effects of drugs and
alcohol. Alcohol has also been used by the Multi
National corporations to divide communities, helping
them gain control of the mineral rights for the area…
Footprints for Peace aims to inspire, empower and
mobilise people to take action and express their
opinions not only through walking, running or bike
riding but also through creative campaigning in street
theatre, music, art, public meetings, petitioning,
letter writing and non violent direct actions.
We hold public meetings and workshops; publish
newsletters and other publications informing and
educating the public to encourage public involvement
concerning environmental, political, social and cultural
NON VIOLENCE GUIDELINES
These guidelines were adopted for
actions taken by the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace
Alliance (OREPA), and are derived from Gandhi’s
principles of satyagraha and Martin Luther King’s
Principles of Nonviolence.
They will guide all Footprints for
Peace actions and events.
