We invite you to participate in the 21st Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace. The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace is a celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. Every year families from across the state and region walk together toward peace because in unity, there is healing! Join us on Mother’s Day to demand dignity and compassion for all families impacted by murder.
The Mother’s Day Walk is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. We’re asking you to invest in community-based solutions to a complex problem. In 2017, our goal is to raise $400,000 for our critical programs and services.
Invest in peace this Mother’s Day - Sunday May 14, 2017!
