Episcopalians invited to make anti-gun violence witness at Mother's Day Walk for Peace

Massachusetts Episcopalians are invited to join Bishop Alan M. Gates and the B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign again this year in making a public witness against gun violence by participating in the Mother's Day Walk for Peace on Sunday, May 12.

This annual pledge walk is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and is a fundraiser for the institute's support of families affected by homicide and its efforts to create a more peaceful society.

Walkers will gather at Town Field Park (1520 Dorchester Avenue) in Dorchester, where the event starts with on-site registration beginning at 6 a.m., program at 8 a.m. and step-off at 8:30 a.m.  Walkers can also join at a second entry point at 9:45 a.m. at Madison Park High School (75 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury Crossing).  The walk concludes with a ceremony at Boston City Hall at 11 a.m.

Register with the B-PEACE for Jorge team here, and find more information about the walk at www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org.  Questions may be directed by e-mail to bpeace@ssypboston.org.
