Way to go!

Thousands or participants gathered at Town Field Park to take part in the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace on Sunday. The annual fundraiser helps raise awareness and support for the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, an organization that focuses on healing, teaching, and learning for families and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief, and loss.

This year’s theme was “Cultivating Cycles of Peace.” From the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace website: “In our society, we are constantly looped into cycles of violence that overshadow the transformative power of peace. We have the agency to cultivate these cycles by empowering survivors, supporting returning citizens and their families and investing in Generation Peace, the young people shaping the world.”

The peace walk ended with a rally in Fields Corner.  This neighborhood tradition is 28 years old and has raised more than $450,000 for the Louis D Brown Peace Institute.

You can still make a donation to help them raise their goal of $600,000! Visit here!
