The Mother’s Day Walk is a beloved Boston tradition and celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities.
Every year families from across the state and region walk together toward peace. Join us on Mother’s Day to demand dignity and compassion for all families impacted by murder.
Every year in the United States, approximately 15,000 people are murdered. For every homicide victim, there are at least 10 immediate people directly impacted by that loss. It is safe to say each year there are at least 150,000 new survivors of homicide victims dealing with the emotional, physical and financial stress of losing a loved one to a traumatic death such as murder. This is not including extended family members, classmates/colleagues, teachers/students, entire communities. Nor does this number include families who are impacted by a loved one committing a murder. Together we can heal and have an impact.
The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace is a celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. Every year families from across the state and region walk together toward peace. Join us on Mother’s Day to rise up and tip the scale towards justice for all families impacted by murder.
The Mother’s Day Walk is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. Help us raise our goal of $400,000 so we can continue to work to tip the scale toward justice for families and communities that are stigmatized by murder. Invest in peace this Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 12, 2019. Register or donate today at mothersdaywalk4peace.org.
