Walk with us for Peace!

May 10, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 10:30 am

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace began in 1996 for families who had lost their children to violence. On a day that we celebrate mothers and children, the Walk became a place for families and friends to feel support and love with thousands of others who pledge their commitment to peace. The Walk is the primary fundraiser to support the work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. 

We are proud to support the work of the Louis D.Brown Peace Institute.  Walk with us and contribute as you are able — and if you can’t do the walk, you can join our team virtually by your contributions and requesting contributions from others!

For those who are unable to walk the 3.6 mile route, but would like to be present at the rally, there will be a few vans for transport along the route. We should give the Institute names of team members requesting transport;
 
Please be in touch if you are planning to:
– walk or need to get on a van
– contribute individually
– help to get donations and need a tracking sheet 
– use social media to get donations (see attached images you can add to Facebook or other social media site)

To check out our team page and to make a donation, go to: bit.ly/peace-walk-2015

Let us know that you plan to walk with us by writing info@masspeaceaction.org or telephoning 617-354-2169.    There will be a large group of walkers at Town Field Park so we might not see each other unless we know to look out for you!

Assembly starts at 7am; the walk steps off at 8am and returns to the same point.  Town Field Park is steps away from Fields Corner station on the MBTA’s red line.
