Walking to make a difference on Sunday, May 12, 2013! RAIN OR SHINE!
Mother's Day Walk for Peace began in 1996 for families who had lost
their children to violence. On a day that we celebrate mothers and
children, the Walk became a place for families and friends to feel
support and love with thousands of others who pledge their commitment to
peace. Through the years, it has become a way for thousands of people
to financially support the work of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.
The Louis D. Brown Peace Institute assists and empowers families impacted by violence by providing support to survivors of homicide victims. Applying their peace curriculum in area schools, the Peace Institute works to instill the value of peace in young people. Through education, collaboration, and policy advocacy, the Peace Institute works to raise awareness of the cause and consequences of violence on the individual, the family, and the community.
