PEACE PARTNERS 2017: Mother’s Day Walk for Peace
May 14, 2017 @ 9:15 am - 12:00 pm$10
Join Massachusetts Peace Action and the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF – Boston Branch), who join as proud partners working for peace at home and abroad. We are inspired by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and recognize the very important work it does to prevent violence and the services it provides to people affected by violence in Boston and beyond. We look forward to joining the walk and raising funds and congratulate the institute on its 21st anniversary!
WILPF and Peace Action will assemble at Madison Park High School and walk to City Hall Plaza.
CELEBRATING THE COURAGE OF COMMUNITY
WE INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HISTORIC 21st ANNUAL MOTHER’S DAY WALK FOR PEACE.
The Mother’s Day Walk is a celebration of our potential to create communities where all families can live in peace and all children are valued. More than that, the Mother’s Day Walk is a commitment to do the work necessary to bring that vision of peace to life. We are walking to raise $600,000 so that we can sustain the Peace Institute as a center of healing, teaching, and learning for families impacted by murder, grief, trauma, and loss. You are an important part of the peacemaking process: when you invest in survivor-led, solution-driven programs and services—you interrupt cycles of violence. Walk with us toward peace, this Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14th, 2017! Please arrive at Madison Park High School at 9:15; the walk steps off at 9:45. (Hard core walkers can start at Town Field Park, Dorchester, at 8am, but the Mass. Peace Action / WILPF group will walk from Madison Park.)
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.
