Walk for Justice 2018

On September 15, 2018, the APBP Student Organization organized the first Walk for Justice, a two-mile trek that began in the WVU Arboretum and flowed onto the Rail Trail. Two undergraduates, Kristin DeVault and Laura Curry, worked for months to prepare for the event. Here is Kristin writing after the walk:

“Wow! We finally made it happen. Thank you to everyone at APBP who stuck with us through this hectic and fantastic experience. The Walk for Justice awareness walk had a great turnout of amazing volunteers and supporters. It’s a beautiful thing to have so many people together walking toward a common goal. I loved seeing everyone wearing APBP’s first shirts! The money we raised will go toward buying books like dictionaries, thesauri, religious materials, and special requests from incarcerated people across Appalachia. We couldn’t have asked for better people to help make this happen. Thank you to Underground Printing Co. for printing the shirts and working so closely with us to make them perfect. Thank you to Laura for thinking this up and getting it in motion. Thank you to Katy for always saying “Sure, let’s try it!” when we have a new idea. Thank you to everyone in between that helped and donated time and effort. I hope we do this all over again next year! ❤️📙”
