Join Rev. Rebecca and the Justice Action Ministry in supporting this year’s Mother’s Day Walk for Peace to benefit the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. The walk will be a “virtual walk” this year, so you can watch from the comfort of your home from 9-9:45am or take a walk of your own! Rev. Rebecca will be showing her support by walking to church on the morning of Mother’s Day:
“I’ll be walking to church from my home next Sunday morning to raise money for our FRS team to support this important work. I invite you to take a walk on your own in solidarity with those who have lost a loved one to gun violence. I hope everyone will join me in this act of solidarity. Thank you for being a part of our commitment to justice, whether you walk, donate to our team, or both.”
FRS team members will also be walking from their homes to the church on Mother’s Day morning. Here is the link to donate and help reach the team’s fundraising goal:
The Louis D. Brown Peace Institute was established in 1994 by Tina Chery, whose 15-year-old son was killed on his way to a “Teens Against Gang Violence” Christmas party. For over 25 years the Peace Institute has been a center of healing, teaching, and learning for families and communities impacted by murder, grief, trauma, and loss. The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace began in 1996 as an opportunity for families, whose children had been killed, to gather and support one another. Today, the walk draws thousands of people from all over Greater Boston who are fed up with this violence and want to send a strong message that violence in any neighborhood is unacceptable.
