The Cape Cod Camino Way Project: Reflecting on Racial and Social Justice

207 253 Olivia Sayah
In response to the killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, Peggy Jablonski developed a project that would allow her and others to engage with racial and social justice on Cape Cod. Inspired by the El Camino pilgrimage in Spain, Peggy created the Cape Cod Camino Way Project; a series of walking pilgrimages throughout the Cape dedicated to learning about and reflecting upon the history of racial and social justice on Cape Cod.
Each walk featured stops at locations of historical significance to the Cape, relating to the unheard stories of women, BIPOC, and the LGBTQ+ community. These stops included: the Wampanoag Museum in Mashpee, the Zion Heritage Museum in Hyannis, Nickerson State Park in Brewster, the Cape Cod National Seashore on the Outer Cape, the AIDS Memorial in Provincetown, and more.
Each week, Peggy shared her questions and observations from the walk via posts on the Cape Cod Camino Way Facebook group, and offered a coffee hour for discussions on Facebook Live. Click here to read more in a Cape Cod Times article interviewing Peggy about the project.
