Support the 22nd Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace in Boston

Join or support the 22nd annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace in Dorchester, a neighborhood of Boston. It takes place on Sunday, May 13, 2018. 

 

The walk is a fundraiser for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, which was established after the death of Brown, a 15-year-old who was killed in 1993 by a stray bullet from a gang shootout. The walk began in 1996 as a way to honor the family and friends of children lost to murder.

 

The walk is a local event that takes place in Dorchester, which is a neighborhood of Boston. It does not have sister or satellite marches. Its organizers hope to raise about $400,000 for the institute, which serves families that have been affected by murder and works to change society so it treats the families of murder victims with greater dignity and compassion.

 

In addition to registering to join the walk and sponsoring walkers, you can boost the event on social media through the #mothersdaywalk4peace hashtag.
