Mother’s Day Walk for Peace

Join Massachusetts Peace Action and the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF – Boston Branch), who join as proud partners working for peace at home and abroad. We are inspired by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and recognize the very important work it does to prevent violence and the services it provides to people affected by violence in Boston and beyond. We look forward to joining the walk and raising funds and congratulate the institute on its 21st anniversary!

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace began in 1996 for families who had lost their children to violence. On a day that we celebrate mothers and children, the Walk became a place for families and friends to feel support and love with thousands of others who pledge their commitment to peace. The Walk is the primary fundraiser to support the work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.

Please note ALL walkers must register. Specify “Peace Partners 2017”.
