Poster printed with red ink on white paper. A large graphic that combines a heart with a peace symbol and three curved lines fills the majority of the page. A smaller version of the graphic is printed at top center with the text, "heart of peace / Lake Merritt/Oakland / May 1-31, 1983." Small text at upper left reads, "Join us. / The Heart of Peace Committee invites you and your friends to become torchbearers for Peace. / Individuals and groups will be demonstrating their commitment to World Peace by carrying a torch around the heart-shaped Lake Merritt (2.8 miles). The Torch of Peace will travel once an hour, on the hour, carried around Lake Merritt by people with peace in their hearts by walking, running, cycling, or roller skating or even, if the mood strikes, skipping...for an uninterrupted 31 days. / Headquarters during month of May: Bellevue & Grand Avenue, north end of Lake Merritt."
