Grandmothers for peace march in Duluth

The group, Northland Grandmothers for peace gathered on Lake Avenue Tuesday to remember and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King.

Those gathering said it was for the King’s work to build peace and end the threat of nuclear weapons.

Dorothy Wolden, the president of the group said, “There has to be another way. War does not work, war is not the answer. Dr. King knew it, he taught us about it and we need to listen. We need to stop war and especially eliminate nuclear weapons.”

Grandmothers for peace was founded during the cold war in 1982 by Superior native Barbara Wiedner.

The twin ports chapter was launched in 1983.
