Mother's Day Walk for Peace

Sunday, May 9, 2021 27 Iyyar 5781

8:00 AM - 12:00 PMBoston, MA

The 25th Annual Mother’s Day Walk For Peace to support the work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute is scheduled to take place virtually on Sunday, May 9th.  This year’s walk is a celebration and remembrance of the Institute's 25 years of walking for Love, Unity, Faith, Hope, Courage, Justice and Forgiveness.  On Mother’s Day, go to www.mothersdaywalk4peace.org for the live program.

There has been a team of walkers form CDT for many years and we hope to continue supporting the walk this year too. Please register at: https://lbdpeace.z2systems.com/np/clients/lbdpeace/eventRegistration.jsp?event=621 and choose Team Dorshei Tzedek on the pull down menu where it says, "Credit this event registration to a fundraiser:”

Registration is $20 per person which goes directly to the Peace Institute’s services, advocacy and training.  Once registered you can make a personal donation to further support the important work the Peace Institute does to help families and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief and loss.

Recent events demonstrate the importance and need of the Peace Institute’s efforts.  In just the past three weeks, the lives of two local citizens have been tragically taken by gun violence.  On March 27th, 19 year-old Xavier Louis-Jacques who was preparing to attend Xavier University in Louisiana, was fatally shot in Cambridge, and on April 10th, 73 year-old Delores Brown, a grandmother, was gunned down while on her porch in Dorchester.  Our financial support will help the families of these victims.

This year we hope to raise $5,000 from the Dorshei Tzedek Community.  Please consider contributing what you are able to at this time.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Abby Cohen at abby.cohen@verizon.net.  Next year, hopefully, we will walk together once more.
