Join Newton Dialogues on Peace and War for an evening with longtime Peace and  
Environmental Activist Louise Bruyn reading from her recently published book  
"/She Walked For All Of Us - One Woman's 1971 Protest Against an Illegal  

1971 — America has been at war in Vietnam for almost six years. The death  
toll is rising, both for the U.S., and for the “enemy.” Louise Bruyn had  
enough! It was time to do something. What could one woman do that would make  
Congress take notice of her protest? 
She decided to walk—from her home in Newton, Massachusetts to Washington,  
D.C. to make her point. Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and Representative  
Robert Drinan met her on the Capitol steps.
What a point she made! People all over the country rallied to support her.  
Finally, someone was saying what so many citizens wanted to, and had no idea  
how to, say—”Stop this War!”
This is her diary, day-by-day, detailing her struggles with fear, her  
encounters with people along the way, and the many wonderful people who  
opened their homes, encouraged her, and helped her on her way.

The presentation will be followed by discussion and copies of the book will  
be available for purchase.
