BOSTON, MA — Martin Richard Foundation joins the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute for its 24th annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace online this year, with a virtual walkathon on Sunday, May 10. Survivors of Homicide Victims, advocates, community members, elected officials, and influencers will unite to recognize victims of homicide and celebrate Boston’s great potential to create communities of peace.

“Our foundation is built upon the values aligned with the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s mission of peace through social justice and equality,” said Martin Richard Foundation Co-Founder, Denise Richard. “It’s a beautiful, powerful feeling to stand united, as one, with other mothers and loved ones and walk for peace and the hope it brings to our communities that see so much violence.  Please join us this Mother’s Day as we remember Martin’s words, No more hurting people, peace.”

Acts of violence impact entire communities, family members, classmates, teachers, colleagues, and teammates. Martin Richard Foundation walks because now, more than ever, we realize the inequities faced by neighborhoods tormented by violence and the need for justice to achieve peace.

“Nothing can stand in the way of the Peace Institute’s determination to spread peace, and transform society’s response to homicide,” said  Louis D. Brown Peace Institute Founder and President Clementina Chéry. “I am thrilled to bring the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace online and continue our decades-long tradition of fighting for a safer, more peaceful world. Uniting to heal our communities is more important than ever this year.”

The annual Mother’s Day Walk is the Peace Institute’s largest fundraising event, and helps support the organization’s services, advocacy, and training. The Peace Institute is a trusted place of healing for those who experience the murder of a loved one, and the organization works to demand dignity and compassion for all victims and their families, regardless of the circumstances.
