Golden Rule Peace Ship
June 11 - June 13
Built in the 1950s, the Golden Rule Peace Ship sailed across the Pacific to protest nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands. In 2009, Veterans for Peace began the processes of restoring the ship and in 2015, relaunched the ship. The Golden Rule has since sailed down the West Coast from British Columbia to San Diego even to Hawaii spreading the message of peace. Now, the Golden Rule sails to Rhode Island.
