Local artist and photographer Jim Harney has decided to take a long walk, a walk to Washington DC.
Harney’s supporters gathered at the Peace and Justice Center in Bangor Wednesday to wish him well.
Harney says he wants to spend his last days walking, talking to folks, and stopping in major cities along the way.
The purpose of the walk, he says, is to bring awareness to the plight of the undocumented workers, or illegal immigrants, who come to the United States for jobs to support their families.
Harney says relatives and friends will accompany him along the way from Maine to DC.
