Sunday May 14th is the 21st Annual Mother's Day Walk For Peace. The Walk will be coming through the South End on the way to the closing Peace Rally at City Hall. Rep Aaron Michlewitz, Rep Kevin Honan, and I are going to be hosting the South End water stop outside the Boston Center for the Arts. We are also excited to have the teens from St Stephan's Church B-Peace for Jorge program helping us at the water stop. For those of you who do not want to walk all the way from Dorchester join us and help welcome the thousands of walkers through our neighborhood.

You can also join us as we follow the march to City Hall for the Peace Rally.
Peace isn't simply the absence of violence; peace is the presence of healing, reconciliation, and accountability. The Mother's Day Walk is a celebration of our potential to create communities where all families can live in peace and all children are valued.

More than that, the Mother's Day Walk is a commitment to do the work necessary to bring that vision of peace to life. This year's walk is seeking to raise $400,000 to sustain the Peace Institute as a center of healing, teaching, and learning for families impacted by murder, grief, trauma, and loss.

I hope to see you Sunday May 14th. And if you can't join us - please consider making a donation to the B-Peace for Jorge Team at
