Join the Diocese of Massachusetts' B-PEACE for Jorge team in participating in the annual Mother's Day Walk for Peace, this year marking its 20th anniversary. The pledge walk is a fundraiser for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, which offers services to families that have lost someone to violence. The institute also provides peace curricula to students of all ages, restorative justice opportunities and support for honoring victims and empowering survivors.
The diocesan B-PEACE team's organizers hope this year to have 400 walkers and raise at least $2,000 for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. This will be the fourth year that Episcopalians have rallied as a team to walk as a witness for peace and show support for victims, survivors and all who are affected by violence.
The walk route is different this year. The walk will step off, as usual, from Town Field Park in Dorchester at 8 a.m., but instead of looping back to the park, it will end at Boston City Hall Plaza with an 11 a.m. rally and closing ceremony. Click here for route details and shorter walk options.
