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.
The Diocese of Massachusetts and B-PEACE have participated in the walk every year since 2013.
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 and/or pledge in support of 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 email@example.com.
