Peace & Justice

A longtime activist, Louise served ten years on the Cambridge MA Peace Commission. She has walked many miles for peace with the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Order especially on journeys that focus on healing our genocidal history, including one covered in the PBS series, “This Far by Faith.”

She has documented these unique healing journeys with photography and writing. Subjects include Buddhist peace walker Jun Yasuda , Mumia Abu Jamal, and the Hiroshima flame.

As a teenager she spoke out for redwoods to a working committee of the California state legislature, in the 1960s she participated in the life-changing Berkeley Free Speech Movement.

Since then she has worked on issues like apartheid and affordable housing in her community and was often quoted as a spokesperson in local media such as The MIT Tech and The Harvard Crimson.

In 2011, she co-organized the Sacred Sites Peacewalk for a Nuclear Free World which brought Native elders and Fukushima refugees together to call for an end to nuclear power and weapons in California.
