The interest in doing a Great American Walk for Freedom has swelled significantly in the first week of exploring the idea. It looks like there will be some kind of Walk for Freedom to Minneapolis ending at Ron Paul’s big rally there on September 2nd. The Ron Paul has announced its Minneapolis rally for September 1st.

This is still something that is in the evolutionary phase. The input from participants has been crucial and has really helped evolve the idea, and will continue to be valuable and important.

**If all goes according to plan and we pull our Walk off properly, Ron Paul will join us for the final few miles.

**Right now we are looking at two routes: from Green Bay to Minneapolis and from Ames, Iowa to Minneapolis. Other routes are possible based on the number of walkers that register.

**We would like to start each route with 78-125 people (78 minimum, the number that Gandhi had when he started the Salt March, 500 is what MLK walked with to Montgomery; we already have 40 pledged to walk the distance!). More may join as the Walk progresses.

**We are thinking in terms of each walker as an Ambassador of Freedom. We would like to focus not just on making a grand display but on doing outreach as we go...stopping to talk with people, give out books and literature and hosting Town Hall Meetings in each town we pass through to talk with folks, answer questions and also meet with media.

**In Los Angeles we are planning a LA Walk for Freedom to test drive what it’s like to walk 15 miles in a day, and of course to do outreach to all we meet about the Message of Freedom. Hopefully we can get similar walks happening across the country to prep for the big Walk and get the Freedom energy flowing.

**We need to get committees formed for Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa ASAP. If you are from these states, we really want you on this call!!

**If you are planning on walking, it would be big help if you could do a YouTube statement pledging to Walk and telling the world why.
