2892 Miles to Go Geographic Walk for Justice
The distance across the continental U.S.
is 2892 miles.
It is long past time
to walk these miles together.
The 2892 Miles to Go Geographic Walk for Justice is a social justice geo-inquiry project amplifying community stories led and told by those who live there. Our hope is to become the antidote to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's eloquent definition of "The Danger of a Single Story" by holding space and elevating the stories of many.
We seek to amplify educators, young change-makers, community leaders & storytellers - we call them Wayfinders - who journey along selected routes in their own communities in an effort re-examine, retell, and reteach stories of injustice embedded within human history and culture.
We use the National Geographic Geo-Inquiry process as a foundation for our work while embarking upon Wayfinding Journeys co-designed by community leaders & educators immersed in liberatory consciousness, social justice, and place-based learning. Learn more about our process here.
We are guided by educators who shape the vision & scope of our path, as well as lead Wayfinding Journeys across the U.S.
