Mothers Day Walk for Peace
By Racial Justice Task Force, Published on April 27, 2017
Wondering how to make Mothers Day special this year? Join the First Parish team walking in the family-friendly Mothers Day Walk for Peace on May 14. We’ll be walking to support the important work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute in responding to the tragedy of gun violence in Boston neighborhoods. As founder and CEO Tina Chery noted at her Lyceum in March, every killing affects many – family, friends, the whole community – of both the victim and the perpetrator. (Read more from Tina Chery.) Peace Institute’s innovative approach is a compassionate expression of the values of Beloved Community, walking together toward peace. What more could a mother hope for?
You can walk that morning, sponsor a walker, or give to our team, all at our team page, https://goo.gl/VgaoOV or find our page at www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org under “get involved” and select List of Teams to find ours. We’ll carpool and be back for church! Distance: 3 miles. See Deborah Niles at social hour or email Becky Siebens with interest or questions.
