When I was at U.S. Institute of Peace, an idea that we started to advocate was a walking tour of peace monuments on the National Mall. I am pleased that this has finally come to fruition. The tour is a collaboration by USIP, the National Park Service and the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of DC.
If you are visiting DC with your family or as part of a professional conference, I would urge you to take out some time and do the peace trail!
I’ve written about monuments in DC before (“Gandhi Memorial and Other Embassy and Diplomatic DC Peace Monuments,” 7/25/14; “West End National Mall Peace Monuments,” 6/22/14) and recently I recommended Ted Lollis’ guide to peace monuments (“Explore Peace Monuments in 2017,” 1/15/17).
