1995 California - September 22 - October 8

The Journey of Hope chose to go to California in 1995. Bill Pelke and Marietta Jaeger were the National organizers. Mike Penzato, through an Amnesty grant, relocated in California to become the State Organizer. Amnesty, NCADP, Death Penalty Focus supported the organizing efforts. Claudia King and the Bay area action team organized the second week of the Journey when the group moved to the North. Housing was mostly at youth Hostels near the Pacific Ocean.
