Mother’s Day Walk for Peace with TBE Online
- Sunday, May 9
- 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM
Make a difference this Mother’s Day: Join/Support the TBE team at the (virtual) 25th annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace, benefitting the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute in Boston. While an in-person walk is again not possible this year, the need for funds raised through this annual event is greater than ever. The Louis D. Brown Peace Institute–founded and led by Chaplain Clementina (Tina) Chery who spoke at TBE a few years ago—is a center of healing, teaching and learning for families and communities impacted by murder, grief, trauma and loss. Initiated in 1996, the Mother’s Day Walk continues to be a powerful way to honor those who have been murdered and embrace our partners in peacemaking. It is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event.
Join/support the TBE team by donating, fundraising and/or participating in a virtual walk, whether on your own or with others.
Go to our team page and click on the GREEN DONATE button to make a donation.
